So work on the new Forest Park Southeast footbridge is moving quickly. The approach ramp from the north was poured this past week as was concrete on the bridge itself. Work on the south side isn’t as far along. Currently, the north end path leads to a random spot on Clayton Avenue almost 80 feet west of Euclid Avenue. This area will see a lot of changes in the coming years and decades, integrating the footbridge with new development will be important.
