The Cushing Street Bridge

Construction and Roadway Improvement Project

This construction and roadway Improvement Project is a vital link in the 3.9-mile Modern Streetcar project.

The 32—foot-long ‘signature’ bridge will provide a shaded east-west connection for pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists, and transit riders.

When complete, the project improvements will include a new roadway and bridge, asphalt concrete pavement, curb, sidewalk, ramps, driveways, utility relocations and improvements, floodwalls, street lighting and other improvements along Cushing Street, between, between Avenida Del Convento and the eastbound I-10 frontage road.

The extended widening of the I-10 underpass at Cushing, along with the Cushing Street Bridge , will serve as an important multi-modal gateway to downtown.
