Pedestrian bridges planned
DETROIT (AP) — A design has been selected for five pedestrian bridges that will traverse a Detroit freeway as part of an international bridge project that will connect the city to Windsor, Ontario, Canada, officials announced Thursday.
The spans over Interstate 75 in southwest Detroit will be part of interchange work being completed for the Gordie Howe International Bridge.
The design features a curved steel arch and the pedestrian bridges will be constructed of pre-cast concrete. They are expected to improve access to neighborhoods, businesses, health care and other services on both sides of the freeway.
