    They should make a similar bridge design to the one at Scarborough Town Center area. The over head is curved like a semi circle at the top made of glass.
    If they're afraid people will break the glass, maybe they could use some strong plastic or other transparent materials.

    I dont see anything wrong with building a glass enclosed pedestrian bridge similar to the Skywalk.

    @Automation: Cost of construction and ongoing cost of maintenance perhaps?

    Imagine the perfect world where the most pressing questions were not the fifteen second sight lines or the minimum twenty eight foot height restriction, but 'how can we make this the best bridge we can' or even 'how can we design the most beautiful bridge possible within our budget.'

    Alas...

    Because that would require too much money and/or imagination...

    I'm assuming that bridge is temporary until Ground Zero is reborn.

    I think the south bridge (pictured) mostly survived, except part of it on the east side. The north bridge was destroyed

    I'm really looking forward to this one as that bridge should be dramatic.
