CityWalk BHAM has been one of the city’s most highly anticipated developments, and we’ve all been wondering when those spotty lights on the I-59/20 bridge are getting fixed. Luckily, we’ve got some updates.

Several portions of CityWalk are nearing completion, including the skate park, sidewalks, planting and more. As for the lights, supply chain issues are causing delays, but ALDOT is hoping to have them fixed by The World Games 2022 in July.

“Our exhibitions range in topic and breadth from ancient Indian sculptures to a large and colorful contemporary installation portraying Birmingham legends. Our programming will offer intimate ArtBreaks in the galleries with experts, lectures by world-renowned artists, lively Heritage Festivals, and the return of our fun and famous Art On The Rocks.”
