Environmental impact was a concern during the construction of the bridges on Maguire Boulevard. In an effort to be more environmentally sensitive, Sixth Ward Councilwoman Barbara Hoppe said the bridge doesn't directly drain into the creek below. The extension increases access to many businesses, including a FedEx facility on the boulevard.
