City hoping to add parking for pedestrian bridge
Friday, April 13, 2012
Several Jefferson City Council members are hoping to find a way to accommodate parking for the pedestrian bridge over the Missouri River.
At the Public Works and Planning meeting Thursday, staff informed committee members of a request for permissive use of right-of-way from Bluebird Network, which received a grant to bring fiber-optic cables to underutilized areas.
In order to bring the cable from Fulton to Jefferson City, the company has worked out an arrangement with the Missouri Office of Administration for use of their land on Clay Street, in addition to requesting use of city right-of-way off of Slate Lane, a small alley off of Clay across from Cliff Street near the bridge.
