Progress continues to move forward with the canopies being placed on all of the overhangs of the bridge. This bridge will be connecting the West Building Hall C Level 3 to the Hyatt Regency Orlando Hotel, ensuring a safe and effective way to cross International Drive. This will be the fifth bridge to connect the surrounding hotels to the convention center.
The bridge tower will house both an elevator and stairway on the OCCC side of the bridge. In total, this bridge will have two elevators (both with ADA access), one escalator and three stairways.
Project completion is estimated for Summer 2017.
