COLUMBUS, Ohio — Ohio House lawmakers exclusively told News 5 Tuesday that the long-awaited pedestrian land bridge to connect downtown Cleveland to Lake Erie would get $20 million in the proposed capital budget's one-time fund.

The pedestrian bridge is a project that has been proposed for years. It would allow locals to safely travel across — and above — the rail tracks. There is plenty more to be done. The land bridge is expected to cost hundreds of millions of dollars. Gallucci responded that this is just the first step. The Ohio Department of Transportation, the City of Cleveland and Haslam Sports Group, who own the Browns, have helped fund a study of proposals of downtown revitalization by providing the $5 million to get the planning and engineering started.
