Arkansas Democrat-Gazette/STATON BREIDENTHAL --5/30/17-- Work continues Tuesday afternoon on the pedestrian and bike ramp from the new Broadway Bridge into Riverfront Park in North Little Rock.

Pedestrian access on the Broadway Bridge has opened on the span’s east side, according to the Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department.

The agency said in a tweet around 2:30 p.m. that the walkway had opened “just moments ago” across the bridge, which connects Little Rock and North Little Rock.

The walkway provides direct access to both cities. As of Friday, though, pedestrians will still not be able to enter or exit the ramp on the Little Rock side until the installation of a truss bridge is complete and the nearby Riverfront Park is reopened.

That work is scheduled for completion by early fall, Highway Department spokesman Danny Straessle previously told Arkansas Online.
