South Broadway skyway construction, 1979

Posted on April 2, 2016 | in Uncategorized | by
Construction of the skyway crossing South Broadway in downtown Lexington, connecting the Hyatt Regency, shown at left, and Kincaid Towers, July, 1979. The concrete span, first in a series of skyways over downtown, is 100 feet long and nine feet wide. It is about 30 feet above South Broadway at its mid-point. The $100,000 project would wrap up with a lerge covering of aluminum and Plexiglas and opened when Kincaid Towers construction was completed later in the fall of 1979. The photo was taken looking east down South Broadway. In the background, just above the bus is what is now The Square. To the left of the bus is a parking lot which would later become Triangle Park.

Construction of the skyway crossing South Broadway in downtown Lexington, connecting the Hyatt Regency, left, and Kincaid Towers in July 1979. The concrete span, the first in a series of skyways over downtown, is 100 feet long and nine feet wide. It’s about 30 feet above South Broadway at its midpoint. The $100,000 project would wrap up with a large covering of aluminum and Plexiglas. It opened when Kincaid Towers construction was completed later in fall 1979. The photo was taken looking northeast down South Broadway. In the background, just beyond the top of the bus, is what is now The Square. To the left of the bus is a parking lot that would later become Triangle Park. Photo by Frank Anderson | Staff
