    Question What is the purpose of the new bridge under construction between the Grand and DCA?

    I have asked the question before and haven't heard an answer as of yet. It's so close to the Grand/DCA entrance, I doubt it would be another entry/exit gate. Is it for vehicles? Just wondering....

    It is an Emergency Egress Bridge for guests of the Grand Californian's White Water Snacks restaurant.

    It will not be available for use by guests unless during the event of a restaurant evacuation.

    That's interesting. I take it that it must be for a building code then.... Wonder why it took them 7 years to notice that the bridge was needed...

    The construction of the new DVC area took away an alternative route, so the Fire Marshall said to build the bridge in case they need to get folks out of the hotel area.

    Its just around the bend from the Grand/DCA entrance bridge. It's just south past the giant bear outside of Grizzly River Run. Thanks for the info guys.
