About the Van Buren Street Bridge

Did you know the Van Buren Street footbridge was once the main bridge on Higgins Avenue?  It was built in 1892 as a wagon and vehicle bridge. In 1908 the bridge was moved to its current location at Van Buren. In 1975 it was converted to pedestrian use providing access to the University of Montana from East Broadway. The Light our Bridges campaign raised more than $100,000 in 2015 to add the lights to the bridge.
