Highland Bridge safety update
The Ryan team is honored to be a part of the Highland Bridge redevelopment, a once in a generation opportunity. After over a decade of planning, site construction work has finally begun, creating essential infrastructure that lays the foundation for much needed affordable housing, public parks and open spaces. It also provides the framework for the private developments that will provide new jobs, homes, and amenities which will contribute to the tax base of the City. We are taking advantage of the warmer temperatures to focus on prepping the site, performing outside activities like earthwork and grading to creating the spaces for essential utilities and infrastructure that will be a first step in construction.
