RICHMOND, Va. — Construction has begun on pedestrian bridges at two locations on the Monroe Park campus of Virginia Commonwealth University.

The bridge on West Main Street, where it intersects with Cherry Street, is complete.

At the end of two days of road closures and work, a structure emerged that had passersby snapping pictures and gazing up in admiration.

Construction begins on the second bridge from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Thursday and Friday, Sept. 3 and 4.
