Nashville Gets One Step Closer to Gulch-SoBro Pedestrian Bridge

It’s been a long time coming but Nashville is one step closer to making the Gulch-SoBro pedestrian bridge dream a reality. According to The Tennessean, “the Metro Council completed a deal Tuesday to acquire the final piece of land.”

The pedestrian bridge has been a topic of conversation for quite some time and it’s been a very controversial topic. While some think the money could be better spent elsewhere, there are many others who are in favor of the $18 million bridge that would connect the Gulch and the SoBro areas. 

The Metro Council voted 34-3 in favor of the deal, according to the Nashville newspaper which stated that that vote gave “final approval of a transaction with the owner of the office complex Cummins Station to acquire land on the SoBro side of the bridge needed for the project.”

Now that the vote has passed, they just need to come together to create a design for the 700 foot bridge.
