Last week crews swung in the last piece of the span for a $26.8 million dollar pedestrian bridge. Which has one of the longest self anchored pedestrian suspension spans in the world; the 500-foot bridge is designed by San Diego architects Safdie Rabines.

92101 Urban Living have been following the development of the Pedestrian Bridge and we are excited to see how fast this construction is taking place. Visit our earlier blog Harbor Drive Pedestrian Bridge Breaks Ground and also our earlier news Pedestrian Bridge Span Put in Place Downtown for more information.

The City of San Diego has to build an overhead span for pedestrians in order to reopen the public walkway across Harbor at Park Boulevard which closed as a byproduct of the Petco Park Project.The bridge will unite Downtown San Diego’s Urban core with a safe pedestrian crossing with easy access to the Convention Center, Petco Park, restaurants, shopping and more. What can beat the “one of a kind” view of a San Diego Downtown loft or condo owner at night time with so much to offer?

The pedestrian bridge is a waste of money. The City could have built an underground tunnel for a fraction of what the bridge cost. San Diego has a history of pedestrian tunnels. In the 1940s two underground pedestrian tunnels were constructed at the intersection of Park Blvd. and El Cajon Blvd so school children could cross the street without risking their lives. The tunnels are still there, but the entrances were covered in concrete in the 1970s. There were also several other pedestrian tunnels at major intersections along El Cajon Blvd.
