ABOVE: Johnson Street Bridge construction site looking north. The area where the large mound of dirt currently sits and the existing “s-curve” road approach on the west side of the bridge will eventually be turned into a new waterfront green space. The new green space will create more than two acres of public waterfront park. The existing concrete pier on the west side of the bridge will be cut down and transformed into¬†a new plaza space adjacent to the new public green space. Photo credit: Picturewest Photography.
