The deck of the Walnut Street Bridge is now in pieces.

Catch up fast: Demolition is part of a $19.1 million reconstruction project that began a few weeks ago and will continue through late 2026.

🚧 The bottom line: Get used to the downtown detours.

  • Portions of the Principal Riverwalk and the John Pat Dorrian Trail will also be closed until the project is completed.
