Proposed Improvements to Montana’s Capital City

(HELENA) — Major changes for both convenience and safety could soon be coming to Helena.

The Helena Citizens’ Council (HCC) has recently made a proposal to construct a pedestrian and bike bridge over Henderson Street on the Centennial Trail.

Currently, the train bridge before the crossing makes this spot potentially dangerous to pedestrians.

HCC District 3 representative, Lowell Chandler says the pedestrian bridge would not only protect folks but also encourage people to get out and exercise.

The bridge would be named the Eric Feaver Memorial Bridge after the former city commissioner Eric Feaver. Feaver worked with the Non-motorized Transit Advisory Council to encourage non-motorized initiatives in the city.
