The effort to connect the High Line with Moynihan Train Hall cleared an important hurdle this week, with the arrival of a new pedestrian bridge.

6sqft reports that the new mass timber structure has been craned into place, and now stands 25 feet above Dyer Avenue. The 260-foot-long bridge connects Manhattan West's public plaza with a new pedestrian pathway at West 31st Street, and then to the Woodlands Bridge extending east from the current northern terminus of the High Line.

The full project is expected to open in late June.

James Corner Field Operations and Skidmore, Owings & Merrill designed the $50-million project, which will be followed by another High Line extension through Hell's Kitchen toward Pier 76.
