Fox Street Pedestrian Bridge - February 2013 Update

The first meeting of a Stakeholder Information Session on the Ash Creek Pedestrian Bridge Feasibility Study was held on February 5, 2013.  The Ash Creek Street pedestrian bridge would be an exciting development as it would create a more direct access to the train station from the southwestern section of Black Rock.  The Fairfield Metro train station would be within walking distance for many more Black Rockers as they could cross Ash Creek, ideally at the end of Fox Street, although there are two other options in the study.
