On Tuesday, work will begin to remove the existing concrete sidewalks on the bridge connecting the Santa Monica Pier to Ocean Avenue to provide a wider, single pedestrian walkway on the north side of the bridge.

In addition to the new walkway, a concrete barrier will be installed between the vehicle lanes and the walkway. Enhanced signage and roadway markings will also be added.

The project is estimated to be completed by March 22 and is expected to make the bridge safer for those on foot. For more information, visit smgov.net/kbug.
