The city of Tukwila, joined by regional elected officials and other leaders, broke ground on the Southcenter Pedestrian Bridge over the Green River on Friday.

The $10 million project was funded through grants from the Washington State Department of Transportation Regional Mobility Grants Program and the Federal Highway Administration, as well as the city of Tukwila.

Once open in 2017, the bridge will provide pedestrian and bicycle connections between the Tukwila Station, which is served by both Sounder and Amtrak train service as well as Metro RapidRide, with the Southcenter area, a regional destination for employment, retail, dining and entertainment.
