Pedestrian bridge to be hoisted Wed. over Durham Freeway

After a year of delays because of funding shortfalls, the new pedestrian bridge that's been sitting on the side of N.C. 147 near the Alston Avenue exit will finally be hoisted into place beginning Wednesday night, according to a news release this morning from the City of Durham. If the weather is bad, the erection of the bridge could be postponed. This photo shows what it will look like once in place.

The $2.2 million bridge will connect neighborhoods around Alston Avenue that have long been separated by the Durham Freeway, and help current and future residents reach public transportation hubs, including a station for the Triangle Transit Authority. The original bridge, which was deteriorating and had limited visibility, was closed in 1995.

Traffic on the Durham Freeway will be re-routed to Briggs and Alston avenues from 11 p.m. Wednesday to 5:30 a.m. Thursday, the release said.
