Pedestrian Bridge Back In Use

In case you hadn't heard, the pedestrian bridge at I-90 and Regal Street is now open again. An overheight truck struck it several weeks ago, leaving it out of commission until repairs could be done.

Doesn't seem like a big deal, but I heard there were issues for the neighborhoods on either side of the freeway who use the bridge for connectivity. Without the bridge, people who don't drive were stuck on either side of the freeway, unless they could find a way to get as far as the Altamont underpass or the Thor overpass.
