Work continues on the athletics department's $10 million Gateway Bridge project to provide a safe pedestrian route between the football stadium and gameday parking areas east of University Boulevard. It also adds a south entrance to the university. The bridge, which will be in use for the Cyclones' first home football game on Sept. 3, is about 60% complete. The span across the road to connect the two towers will be added in mid-June.
