AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - The Fifth Street pedestrian bridge is coming right along.

It’s been two years since we learned the bridge linking Augusta and North Augusta would be redeveloped into a walking bridge.

On Wednesday night, Augusta officials decided to let the lights shine for a test run.

The bridge features colorful lights and large redesigned walkway.

There are also dates marking important events in the bridge’s history.

The project costs more than $10 million with a goal to bring more foot traffic to downtown.

City officials say they’ll have more information on opening in the coming weeks.
