Nobody feels safe walking on the sidewalk along either of these bridges, especially if they are walking with young children. The City cannot expect pedestrians who live/ work on one side of the river to regularly attend events/ patronize businesses on the other side of the river, if they have to gamble with their lives in order to get there. The SW 7th Ave bridge sidewalk is especially dangerous because of the way the street curves leading into the bridge. The need for these guard rails will become more pronounced over the next few years as the south side of the Riverwalk becomes more fully developed.
