The new pedestrian overpass bridge on West Colonial Drive is now open.

The quarter-mile pedestrian bridge crosses the Colonial Drive area just east of Interstate 4, before reaching North Orange Avenue. City officials have said the bridge will "help provide a safe connection from the Downtown core to the north, providing critical links between the Orlando Urban Trail and Gertrude's Walk, SunRail and LYNX Central Station."

The entire bridge cost nearly $10 million, with most of the funds ($9.2 million) coming from the Florida Department of Transportation.
