CLEVELAND -  Three years ago, the pedestrian bridge that spanned I-90 near East 185th and 177th Streets was hit by a dump truck. The damage to the structure was so bad that the bridge had to be torn down.

But plans are in the works to build a new bridge.

Crews began work  to replace the bridge, that will link Nottingham Village and North Shore Collinwood neighborhoods, this week.  The Ohio Department of Transportation released a drawing of what it will look like when it's all finished. It won't just be for pedestrians though: hopes are that a proposed bike path will also cross the bridge.

The project is expected to be finished in October of this year.
