After 5 years the Jefferson Street pedestrian bridge is finally open again. 

And it's pretty nice.

It was scheduled to open in the Fall of 2019 so a delay of only 9 months is actually pretty good considering how good we usually are at hitting construction deadlines around here.

I walked it today and as you can see in the video above it's clean, wide, and a whole heck of a lot nicer than walking at street level.

Apparently there are LED lights installed on the bridge that illuminate it at night. Looking forward to seeing that sometime later this summer.

Get out over the weekend and walk it yourself.
