If you drove down Buena Vista Drive this past weekend, you surely noticed all of the work happening on both sides of the road, including the giant pieces of the first pedestrian bridge to be installed over the busy roads.

The bridge will be installed on March 19th between 1AM and 7AM. Road detours will be occurring during those hours to accommodate for the work. The bridge should open a few weeks after that.

This will be the fist of several pedestrian bridges being installed as part of the Disney Springs project, aiming to speed-up the flow of traffic in the area by removing several traffic lights and expanding lanes.
