The purpose of replacing the Fever Creek pedestrian bridge is to provide a safe, reliable, and environmentally responsible bridge running east to west between Superior Street and Michigan Street. Currently there is no pedestrian bridge connecting the trail that comes from the E Illinois Street Right of Way (ROW) and crosses Fever Creek. The former bridge was removed primarily due to public safety concerns, as it saw heavy use by elementary school children who would walk from their homes in the Roosevelt and Alabama Hill neighborhoods. This document will examine the impacts of reconstructing the bridge and consider two different alternatives.
