Supporters and opponents of the 22nd Street Bridge Repair Project made their cases to city leaders at a public meeting Tuesday.

The proposed project would add a pedestrian lane in the center of the overpass, which is located between South Tucson Boulevard and South Kino Parkway.

Supporters said it would make it easier for those without cars to cross over BarrazaAviation Parkway.

Opponents, like Jesse Lugo, a concerned citizen who attended the meeting, believe the design is dangerous.

“We believe it is a public safety issue to use people as a traffic divider,” Lugo said.

City leaders clarified at the meeting that the pedestrian lane would go underneath the bridge.
