Construction on a new pedestrian bridge is underway, the city of Mauldin announced June 20.
The bridge, which is expected to be completed later this year, is the result of a partnership between the city and BridgeWay Station developer Hughes Investments.
Once complete, the bridge will extend over Interstate 385 near the Bridges Road exit and connect the new BridgeWay Station development with the greater Mauldin community.
Pedestrians will be able to access the bridge through the Mauldin City Trail, a 0.25-mile paved trail located on East Butler Road, across from Mauldin High School.
“There are several developments that are going to really enhance the Mauldin community and this is one that we have been excited about for a long time,” said Mauldin Mayor Terry Merritt. “The bridge is a unity point that will enhance the walkability to the new amenities coming to BridgeWay Station, and we’re excited to see it coming to fruition.”
The first phase of BridgeWay Station is expected to be completed in early 2023 and will bring a variety of dining, entertainment and recreation opportunities to the area, as well as new apartments, offices and workspaces.
