Grant provides funding for proposed Huntsville skybridge
The city of Huntsville is step closer to a planned skybridge project.
The bridge is meant to connect downtown Huntsville and two neighborhoods that are currently separated by highways. A new $20 million federal grant may jump start the idea.
The project is meant to include greenways and a suspended pedestrian. The official name of the skybridge is the Pedestrian Access and Redevelopment Corridor.
It’s reportedly been on hold because of a lack of funding. City officials say groundbreaking will probably take place in the late spring or summer of 2023 and the project will take up to two and a half years to complete.
