(KSL News) Just a day after the Salt Lake City Council gave initial approval for a sky-bridge over Main Street, Mayor Rocky Anderson is thinking about vetoing council members' decision.

The Deseret Morning News reports Anderson has instead proposed closing Main Street to traffic between 100 South and South Temple, so shoppers will stay on Main Street instead of being funneled through the sky-bridge.

Opponents of Anderson's plan say closing Main Street will just cause more congestion, deterring people from coming downtown.

The sky-bridge would connect the two parts of the downtown redevelopment project.
