There’s a disconnect between the Gulch and SoBro neighborhood, but the Gulch-SoBro Pedestrian and Bicycle Bridge will change that soon. According to Connect Nashville, the Gulch-SoBro Pedestrian Bridge was officially approved for construction on October 21, 2014.
The 700-foot bridge will link Pine Street in the Gulch to 10th Avenue South in SoBro at the end of Cummins Station, uniting the Gulch neighborhood with the SoBro neighborhood. The project will cost $18 million to complete. It will be practical and visually appealing, allowing walkers and bikers to cross over the long-standing railroad. The bridge will also be handicap accessible with an elevator on the Gulch side and a ramp on the Cummins Station side.
