A pedestrian and bicycle bridge will span the Scioto River in the heart of Dublin connecting the future Riverside Crossing Park on the east side of the river as well as nearby commercial, residential and retail to Downtown Dublin on the west side. The pedestrian bridge will also serve as an iconic City of Dublin landmark – representing connectivity and inclusivity.
The bridge will be 760-foot total length by 14 foot wide. The bridge deck is “S” shaped in plan with a radius of 500 foot and is anchored into the earth at the embankments. Four 65 foot approach spans lead to a 500 foot long suspension span. The deck passes through the “keyhole” of the main tower which is 169 foot tall.
A pedestrian bridge linking the east and west sides of the Scioto River has been envisioned since The Community Plan was adopted in 2007. In early 2017 the City contracted with Kokosing Construction for a cost of $22,603,889 for the construction of the pedestrian bridge.
The bridge is part of $120 million worth of public and private investments taking place in Downtown Dublin over the next couple of years.
