NOTE: The official opening of the pedestrian bridge has been postponed due to concerns relating to the spread of coronavirus. 614NOW will update this story once a new date for the opening has been announced.
After a three-year wait, Dublin’s new pedestrian bridge will open to the public on Friday, March 13. We’re so excited, we sent (614)‘s office drone to capture footage of the highly-anticipated structure. The “S” shaped bridge spans 760 feet across the Scioto, connecting Old Dublin with Bridge Park. It’s 14 feet wide, and designed to accommodate foot and bicycle traffic.

The thing with binging TV is that you have to be using two senses at once to be engaged: sight and hearing. That really cuts down on the possibilities of getting other things done simultaneously. But, podcasts on the other hand require only one sense—hearing—so the productivity possibilities are exponentially greater.
