The walkway would be lit from an electrical connection off the pedestrian bridge. The connection would extend to the observation tower and restrooms for lighting of those features. Sanitary sewer and potable water lines would be extended from existing utilities near the west end of Avenue D, across the L627 Levee to the observation tower. A 12-foot-wide gravel emergency access road in River’s Edge North would provide access to the tower complex.
