The event will be held at the city’s Community Development Office on 330 West 100 South.

The proposed pedestrian bridge is part of a collection of projects dedicated to first and last mile connections to public transit that were awarded a U.S. Department of Transportation TIGER grant being managed by the Utah Transit Authority. In addition to Provo, the partners include the Mountainland Association of Governments (MAG), 35 cities, counties and Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs), as well as the Utah Department of Transportation.
