Downtown San Diego Harbor Drive Pedestrian Bridge Update
Construction continues to move along on the Harbor Drive Pedestrian Bridge. The $26.8-million project will provide a safe and iconic crossing over the busy Harbor Drive and existing train and trolley tracks. The 135 foot bridge was designed by architects Safdie Rabines of San Diego and will be a welcome edition to the Downtown Neighborhoods.
Once finished, the beautiful bridge will look like it is sailing into San Diego’s skyline as it completes a 100-year vision to link the San Diego Bay and Balboa Park. The bridge is designed to be one of the longest self-anchored suspension bridges for pedestrians in the US.
Public Improvements for Downtown San Diego Condo Owners
The new Harbor Drive Pedestrian bridge is located next to PETCO Park in the East Village District. The bridge will safely connect ballpark and Gaslamp Quarter visitors with the Convention Center and the San Diego Bay. Visitors and residents at Park Terrace San Diego Condos, The Legend Condos San Diego or Parkloft condos will no longer have to wait 20 minutes for the freight train to pass through.
The new bridge will be great for Padres fans, downtown residents that like to walk, jog or run along the waterfront, visitors attending conferences at the convention center and also for guests of the new Hilton Bayside Hotel.
According to CCDC, the Harbor Drive Pedestrian Bridge will have it’s grand opening ceremony on March 17 at noon when all of the dignitaries are available for the ribon cutting ceremony.
The Harbor Drive Pedestrian Bridge is another prime example of positive progress in San Diego and will prove to be a welcome addition to the wonderful downtown San Diego skyline.
