The City of Las Vegas began construction of the Symphony Park Pedestrian Bridge last July. This is the only pedestrian bridge planned for downtown, and its location is vital: Symphony Park is isolated from the rest of downtown’s entertainment and dining offerings by railroad tracks. The bridge is a key urban connection that will offer safe access for pedestrians, allowing us, at long last, to walk from the Smith to Fremont East or the Arts District for a post-show cocktail. The 150-foot-long prefabricated steel bridge will be elevated 30 feet above the Union Pacific Railroad right-of-way and will extend from the City Hall parking garage to the parking garage of the Smith Center, providing a direct route to Symphony Park from the office core of downtown and reducing traffic and congestion at the new performing arts center. The $4.5 million project will take eight months to complete.
