Observers may have noticed some major milestones have been met in construction of the new pedestrian bridge at 151st Street. The new bridge is projected to cost 24.4 Million Dollars, and will link Hamilton Heights with Riverbank State Park and the Greenway.
Last Summer the project took a hard hit, as concrete foundations were found to be faulty and had to be removed and re-poured. Now however, real progress is being made.
In the past week, steel beams have been set in place over the West Side Highway and Amtrak right-of-way. No small task considering how busy these corridors are!
