DTD Update: Pedestrian Overpasses

Pedestrian overpasses are under construction at the intersection of Hotel Plaza Blvd and Buena Vista Drive.  The first overpass will begin here near the Hilton Orlando Lake Buena Vista.

It will carry people across Hotel Plaza Blvd where they can continue across Buena Vista Drive via a second overpass directly into Downtown Disney Marketplace.  Have not seen any concept art on what they're going to look like but I don't doubt that they will be nicer than those at many major intersections in Las Vegas.  Both overpasses at DTD will encourage those at nearby hotels to walk rather than drive and it will also eliminate the need for stopping traffic for pedestrian crossing times.
