Riverwalk Arches going out for bid

AUGUSTA, Ga (WJBF) - Some big changes are still in the works at Augusta's Riverwalk. 

The Downtown Development Authority is moving forward on plans to put two lighted arches at Riverwalk.

The design drawings have been completed and the next step will be to put the work out for bid. 

The signs, which will say Riverwalk in big letters, will serve as gateways to the park.

"We're going to frame the commons, there's going to be one at 8th Street and one at 9th Street, the lighting is LED you'll be able to see them from Broad Street. They're kind of like gateways to Riverwalk. There's no real signage. We're looking at this as something that will draw additional people to Riverwalk."

The budget is about $550 thousand dollars. Sales tax money already approved for the DDA will be used. 

Woodard says the timeline to put them in depends on the bids that come in  and whether they are within budget.
