The pedestrian bridge to connect the two parts of the National World War II Museum announced back in 2013 has finally moved forward, with crews beginning the installation over the weekend.

A $2 million building permit was filed with the the city back in 2013, with Voorhees Architecture of New York and Mathes Brierre Architects of New Orleans designing the steel-frame, glass-enclosed bridge that will connect the second floor of the Louisiana Pavilion to the upper floor of the Victory Theater.

The 87-foot-long bridge was funded 75% by the state and 25 percent by private donors.

 The bridge is due to open in December.
