Update on Fox Street Pedestrian Bridge

Since 2012, the Office of Planning and Economic Development (OPED) has been working to develop and implement plans to build a pedestrian footbridge connecting Fox Street to the Fairfield Metro train station. Creating transit-oriented residential areas is a key component in attracting young professionals to Black Rock – benefitting local restaurants and shops with more foot traffic.

n 2012, Representative Auden Grogins was awarded a $500k grant to improve the streetscape on Fairfield Ave. in the Black Rock Business District. Planning sessions are underway for the Ash Creek gateway entering Black Rock from the Fairfield line, as well as the intersection of Fairfield Ave.
