Pedestrian bridge work continues

Work continues on the pedestrian bridges over Broadway and College Avenue, however the bridges remain open during construction.

The work includes adding a brick facade on both sides of the bridges, giving them an appearance that is more consistent with the look of the Stephens campus. Eight-foot high columns will also be added atop the piers and will match the historic columns near Historic Senior Hall.

Additionally, signage will let drivers know they’re crossing through Stephens College territory. The Stephens College name, as well as official seal, will span the sides of the bridges.

“We’re really excited about this project,” said Lindi Overton, vice president for finance and administration. “Not only is it good for Stephens, it also improves the look of what really has become an entryway into Downtown Columbia.”

This is the second phase of the bridge improvement project, which last year included replacing the bridge spans and adding wrought iron railing.
