Governor Announces Groundbreaking on Vesey Street Pedestrian Bridge

Governor George E. Pataki announced the groundbreaking for the construction of a pedestrian bridge at Vesey Street, providing direct access for thousands of pedestrians to the World Financial Center, Battery Park City, and the Hudson River waterfront. The bridge, scheduled to open in November 2003, will span across Route 9A/West Street from the World Financial Center to the east side of Vesey Street, in front of the Verizon Building. The opening of the bridge is set to coincide with the opening of the temporary PATH station at the World Trade Center site. Both the pedestrian bridge across West Street and the PATH station were destroyed in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. Vesey Street is currently closed to vehicular traffic, with the exception of construction-related vehicles, creating the need for a safe and direct walkway across West Street. MORE
