Pedway System Gets Some Upgrades

Thousands of Saint Johners that work uptown and use the pedway every day may not appreciate what a unique and helpful system it is.

The City will be doing some work on the Chipman Hill pedway including using smaller panes of glass in case they crash or leak.

Finance Commissioner Greg Yeomans says the pedway's indoor access to the major hotels is used a when marketing for conferences and other events.

He says he thinks we may have to look beyond it's link to city hall and the convenience.

Upgrades will extend the pedway system's life expectency, which is over 30 years old now, to 75 years.
