EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) - The new pedestrian bridge crossing over the Lloyd Expressway at Vann Avenue was officially dedicated Thursday by Evansville Mayor Lloyd Winnecke.

It costs just over $2 million to complete.

80% of that money came from federal sources.

It took about five years for this day to come but Mayor Winnecke says it's finally a project they can check off the list.

"This is a project that's been on the books for a while, it's had a few set backs.  So it's nice. I think it's very attractive and it certainly is a great tool for walkers, runners, and cyclists, anyone who's out to get some exercise we're excited we can finally check this one off as a completed project," said Mayor Winnecke.

The mayor also mentioned Roberts Park as a future project to connect to the bridge.
