Kissimmee officials recently announced that they are going to build a new pedestrian bridge over a particularly busy road in order to make it safer for people who use a nearby bike trail. The bridge will be built at John Young Parkway near Columbia Avenue at the end of the bike trail, where it meets a very busy six-lane highway. The projected cost of the bridge is $8 million, but city officials say that this is a small price to pay to protect lives. Around 40,000 cars travel on this section of John Young Parkway every day.
