Cannery Way Bridge

After serving over 91 years, the former Bridge Street bridge was at the end of its service life. A replacement bridge is being built and will include two vehicular lanes, bicycle lanes, wide pedestrian sidewalks, lanterns and overhead catenary lighting and a new setting for safe crossing over the White River.

  • Why couldn't you keep the old bridge for pedestrian use only?

    over 1 year ago

    The old bridge’s last inspection gave it a safety rating of 7 out of 100. It also contains environmental issues like lead paint. Our engineers estimate that redoing the bridge to safely carry pedestrians would cost over $10 million and would require expensive ongoing upkeep. Plus, it’s sitting where about 25% of the new bridge needs to go. There was only so much land to adjust the path of the bridge, and even building the new bridge took months of research into right-of-way and deeds going back to original, handwritten donation land claims.
