Salt Lake City Split Over Controversial Skybridge

The City Creek Center is touted as the means to revitalize Main Street in Salt Lake City. However, there are many critics of the claim that a skybridge over Main Street is "critical to the success of the project."

The City Creek Center -- with a $1.5 billion dollar budget -- is touted as the largest commercial retail development ever in Utah. Past projects have all come from private development companies. However, this is different in that its being solely financed by the Latter Day Saints Church. Despite some accusations that the L.D.S Church is building their own "Vatican City" in downtown Salt Lake City, residents are very pleased to see the church investing such a huge sum to help revitalize downtown Salt Lake City. The project without doubt will function to bring life back to Main Street and enhance the tourist destination of Temple Square. However, there is one part of the project that has many critics calling foul: a private skybridge over public Main Street.
