A pedestrian bridge opened Wednesday to make it easier to get from downtown Las Vegas into Symphony Park, between the railroad tracks and Interstate 15.
The bridge is expected to open foot traffic between downtown hotels and The Smith Center for the Performing Arts. It could boost business at downtown restaurants and other attractions.
Officials on hand for the opening included Mayor Carolyn G. Goodman, Councilman Ricki Y. Barlow, Councilman Bob Coffin and Myron Martin, president and CEO of The Smith Center for the Performing Arts.
The railroad tracks have been seen as a divider that the bridge will help overcome.
