This event is scheduled for November 9th, 2023, at 4 p.m. on the west side of the overpass, just north of the Walmart AMP.
The Uptown Overpass Project represents the city's commitment to progress, improved mobility, and a better quality of life for its residents and visitors. This project creates a direct connection between the commercial, medical, and residential areas of Uptown.
