It's reportedly intended to give walkers, bikers, and skateboarders and safer passage across a busy roadway.

The pedestrian bridge is slated to be built across Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. at Broadway, right near the highly-trafficked Walter Rand Transportation Center.

Camden County freeholders approved $7.5 million to complete the project, according to Courier Post.
