The Capital Cascades Crossing Bridge

View all


The Capital Cascades Crossing Bridge — the canopied pedestrian walkway over South Monroe Street — is now open.

Construction crews finished the 15-month project on Friday, allowing walkers, bikers and runners on it for the first time. Residents spent the weekend posting photos and videos of themselves walking across the bridge on social media.

The bridge, which passes the street just north of Oakland Avenue directly next to Orion Motorsports, connects Cascades Park to the refurbished FAMU Way. It's also a key link of the Capital Cascades Trail, which will stretch from Franklin Boulevard to the St. Marks Trail.
