Feasibility Study for World's Fair Park Pedestrian Bridge
The Knoxville Museum of Art (KMA) consulted with Sasaki Associates in 2009 to create a vision plan that looked at new uses for the spaces around the museum and its connectivity to the neighborhood and adjacent City facilities. The goal of the feasibility study was to determine the viability of a proposed pedestrian connection from World's Fair Park to the Fort Sanders Neighborhood at 11th Street. This proposed connection includes several grade obstacles including a pedestrian bridge over the railroad tracks, with ADA accessibility to the park below, and a 15-foot elevation difference through the parking lot between KMA and 11th Street.
City officials and consultants presented a study of a possible World's Fair Park pedestrian bridge, and provide an opportunity for public comment and questions at a July 16th public meeting held at the L&N STEM Academy.
The consultant team included CDM Smith, CRJA and Sanders Pace Architecture.
