John Hollenhorst ReportingThe winning design was unveiled today for a striking new pedestrian walkway that will finally connect up two major sections of the Sugarhouse area.
The community has long been divided by a very busy 13th East. On the east side is popular Sugarhouse Park. On the west is a lively business district and a natural park-like area called Hidden Hollow.
The design unveiled at a news conference today won a prize of 5,000 dollars. It involves a pedestrian walkway that goes under 13th East in a sort of ravine or draw.
Traffic will be bridged over the walkway, which will be known as "The Draw at Sugar House."
The walkway will eventually be part of a trail linking the Jordan River Parkway to the Bonneville Shoreline Trail.
