Kissimmee pedestrian bridge | Orlando Accident & Injury Blog
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. Since one side of the trail ends at this busy road, pedestrians and bicyclists often risk crossing the six lanes of traffic to get to the other side.
