Community Foundation and City eye grants to improve pedestrian bridge

EAST GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.—Fundraising efforts are underway to improve the pedestrian bridge over the channel between Reeds and Fisk lakes.

The East Grand Rapids Community Foundation is partnering with the City for the project, which would replace the current two-lane roadway and narrow wooden bridge with a three-lane roadway and elevated boardwalk.  The third lane of the road would be separated from vehicle lanes, allowing visitors to pass with less risk.

The Community Foundation and City are applying for state and local grant funding in addition to raising private funds.  They hope to begin the project within the next few years.
