Get across the canal without getting wet.
In about a week’s time there will be a new way to cross the canal. The city is putting in place a new pedestrian bridge that will allow visitors to cross directly in front of Casa del Barco on South 12th Street. The picture above shows the original site plan and location.
Today (Thursday) a 550 ton crane is being assembled on site to lift the 87’ by 10’ bridge into place on Friday. After about of week of work it should be open for human traffic.
