Utah Transit Authority celebrates new overhead pedestrian bridge at Provo Central Station

By Katerina Gasset

I've got some exciting news to share about a cool new addition in Provo that's making our daily commutes even better. It's all about the new overhead pedestrian bridge at Provo Central Station. Trust me, this is something to get pumped about, especially if you use public transport or love a good walk around town.

First off, let me set the scene. Provo Central Station is a busy spot where trains, buses, and people all come together. In the past, getting across the tracks could be a bit of a hassle, and let's be honest, not the safest adventure. But now, thanks to the Utah Transit Authority (UTA), we've got this amazing new pedestrian bridge!

The bridge's grand opening was a big deal – there was a proper celebration and everything. It felt like the whole community came out to see this new landmark. And why not? It's not just a bridge; it's a symbol of progress and safety in our city.

Here's the lowdown on the bridge:

  • Safe & Sound: No more darting across tracks. The bridge is all about safety first.
  • Convenience is Key: It connects the station's platforms directly, making transfers super easy.
  • A Sight to See: The design is sleek and modern. It's like a little piece of art right in the heart of Provo.
  • Eco-Friendly Bonus: Encourages walking and using public transport – good for us and the planet!

It's not just about convenience. Safety is a huge win here. No more worrying about rushing across the tracks when you're late or not paying attention. The bridge keeps everyone – commuters, families, students – safe and sound.

And let's talk about the vibe. Walking across that bridge feels like you're part of something modern and forward-thinking. Provo is growing, and we're keeping up with the times. It's a small change, but it makes a big difference in how we move around and enjoy our city.

Looking ahead, I'm excited to see how this bridge becomes a part of our daily lives. It's a step towards a more connected, accessible, and safe Provo. And who knows, maybe it'll inspire more cool projects like this in the future.

About the author of Move to Provo Utah Website 

Katerina Gasset

When I moved here I was blessed to have my daughter to help with different things you need to know when you move to a new place. I had background from living here before but things have changed a lot too since the '80s. 

We were able to get all the good places to eat down fast - since she knows all that and we have a lot of the same likes in food. But things like how to turn on my electricity or what power company services my home... well... I was at a total loss! 

I know that other people moving to Provo don't always have family here to guide and help them. And most people don't have a real estate agent who gives them a welcome package on all the important numbers and places they need to know. 

My goal is for this website to be your go to resource for everything you need to know before, during, and after you move here to Provo, Utah. I want you to have the best experience and love living here as much as I do
