A new pedestrian bridge over Nancy Creek alongside Windsor Parkway could be open by spring.

City Council on Oct. 4 approved a $384,000 contract with Ed Castro Landscape to build the bridge and sidewalks on Windsor Parkway near the Northland Drive intersection.

Construction could start this month and will take half a year, city capital improvement program manager Marty Martin told the council. The project will use pervious concrete that allows some water to seep through it to reduce water runoff.
