Esther Simplot Park Pedestrian Bridge Replacement

Construction of new pedestrian bridge
Pedestrian Bridge Project Area in Esther Simplot Park

Due to structural deficiencies, the pedestrian bridge connecting ponds 1 and 2 at Esther Simplot Park has been removed with public safety in mind. Fencing has been installed around the project area and work to replace the bridge has begun. Please stay out of the closed and fenced off area.

Construction is anticipated to wrap up in the spring.

Meanwhile, other pathways in the park remain open for use.

Thank you for your cooperation!
