City of Waco – Public Information – Check it out, Waco! The Bridge Street Project in East Waco is coming together. This “festival street” will run from Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard to Mann Street, converting a total of three blocks into a hub for people to gather. Currently, much of the pavement has been poured, some of the seating has gone in and the stage is up. Coming soon there will also be trees, art, colorful crosswalks and a dedicated plaza. Recently, the City of Waco agreed to help establish a safe crosswalk on MLK Jr. Blvd which will invite folks who walk the Suspension Bridge to continue on into East Waco to explore Bridge Street.The intent of the project is to cultivate a space that reflects the heart and soul of East Waco. City Center Waco began this project by convening focus groups of neighborhood members to speak into the planning of such a space. Bridge Street will be a place where everyone can swing by, take a seat, and stay for a while!
