Footbridge on Jefferson Avenue Now Fully Funded


SPRINGFIELD — The 116-year-old footbridge at Jefferson and Commercial Street is now fully funded to be restored.

The Commercial Club of Springfield announced it reached its fundraising goal of $50,000.

The Jefferson Avenue Footbridge closed in March of 2016, after an inspection uncovered problematic areas that could pose danger if used.

A news conference will be held tomorrow to talk about the future plans for reopening the historic footbridge.
