The Walnut Street Bridge is a 100+ year-old pedestrian bridge that connects downtown Chattanooga to the North Shore.  The South’s oldest truss bridge was set to be demolished before locals saved it and lobbied for it to be turned into a walking bridge.  For 24 hours a day, this bridge serves as a place for runners and cyclists to get their sweat on, whether it’s just doing laps or to help connect them to a park or path on another side of the Tennessee River.  It’s also a place where locals use the power of their feet to get to work, restaurants, or activities.  The north end of the bridge connects to Frazier Avenue, the heart of Chattanooga’s North Shore.  It is lined with boutiques and restaurants and has easy access to both Coolidge and Renaissance Parks.  On the south end, it is just off the Riverwalk path, via the glass walking bridge by the Hunter Museum of American Art.
