Proposed Pedestrian Bridge Facing Mixed Reactions

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

A proposed pedestrian bridge is receiving mixed feelings from the people work near it.

The pedestrian bridge, if approved, will be at the intersection of South 25th Street and Montana Avenue. The bridge will go over the train tracks and create a pedestrian bridge that links the otherwise disconnected 25th Street.

Opponents of the bridge says there's not enough walking traffic to warrant a bridge, while supporters say it would be a fantastic addition to people who are based on one side of the train tracks, but work on both sides.

Wyeth Friday, Planning Divisions Manager for the City of Billings, says this bridge has been in the works for over a decade.  He believes it will allow pedestrians to have a safer commute across the train tracks.

Friday says bids to construct the proposed pedestrian bridge could start as soon as May.
