The Cushing Street Bridge has been named the "Luis G. Gutierrez Bridge at Cushing Street".
The Cushing Street Bridge construction and roadway improvement project is a vital link in the 3.9-mile Modern Streetcar project. The 320-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 Avenida Del Convento and the eastbound I-10 frontage road.
- Additional Info
- 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.
Please be aware that the construction budget and expenditures are included within the Modern Streetcar Project.
