Cacique Bicycle and Pedestrian Bridge


Funding Approved for Eastside Bike and Pedestrian Bridges


Engineering work on two new bicycle and pedestrian bridges slated for the Eastside ​— ​ one over Cacique Street and one over Soledad Street ​— ​got the green light on 2/24, as the City Council voted to authorize $442,000 to cover design, engineering, and permit costs. Some have questioned why the bridges will not allow cars. Traffic officials said they determined based on public outreach that nearby neighborhood residents did not want vehicles crossing.
