Three bridges provide easy pedestrian access throughout Unity Park:
The 70-foot Hagins Family Bridge was installed just upstream of the Reedy River crossing at Hudson Street. Prefabricated in Pickens, SC, the bridge arrived in once piece and was put in place with a crane. The bridge opened in July 9 2021.
The 110-foot Spinks Bridge was installed upstream, closer to Mayberry Street, in August 2021. Also prefabricated, this larger bridge was transported in two sections and placed with a crane. It opened in December 2021, allowing pedestrian access to businesses on the south side of the river.
Finally, construction of 165-foot Auro Bridge (at right) is complete but the bridge will remain closed until the park opens on May 19, 2022. Made of weathered steel, the Auro Bridge was constructed on-site, by specially trained crews suspended on cables, working from both sides of the river.
