Myers pedestrian bridge construction set to begin

LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — After several months of delays, work on the John T. Myers pedestrian bridge is set to begin this fall.

Construction on the bridge was supposed to begin several months ago, but Lafayette City Engineer Jenny Leshney said the city couldn’t find a bid that fit the budget.

Leshney said in the next few weeks, crews will begin making repairs under the bridge then work on the bridge itself next year.

“The contractor is working on ordering all the materials to do the top of the bridge work, and so we’ll be looking at spring for the top of the bridge and then also the railroad bridge,” Leshney explained.

Leshney said people will be able to use the bridge until at least March of next year.
