    Did they include a pass-under or river access on the south side that will allow an extension to the riverwalk? That seems like it would be a no-brainer, but.........

    I think they were originally planning on changing the river entry on the south side, but the historical commission nixed it. Everything is looking great, that whole plaza is going to be improved with West Elm and the Rennaissance moving in. I'd love to see more retail in the area.

    Over/under on how long before drunk folks are climbing up and walking across the tops of the arches? I say <2 months before the first one falls off.

    Nice bridge artwork, which hopefully was made in a way to withstand graffiti removal.

    Congrats to all who worked on the project. It was impressive to watch this construction downtown, as the men and woman who built this endured a variety of weather-related discomforts. It's beautiful, the bridge. It is certainly the centerpiece of what's happening downtown. Reno residents, come down and see this. It's impressive, in a big way. And spend a little of your money with the retail merchants, too.

    Looks great in person. Nice to see the city support a local craftsman of the caliber of Paolo Cividino and his crew at Tutto Ferro. Nice that the river is looking so good right now for the unveiling.

    And now we need a new law against climbing on city property because the bridge design invites it. Pretty bad attractive nuisance if it requires its own law.
