Pontiac firm to open longest enclosed pedestrian bridge in US

The city of Pontiac will soon be home to what is being called the nation’s longest enclosed pedestrian bridge.

Fast-growing mortgage firm United Shore Financial Services announced Thursday that it has obtained city approval to construct the 1,000-foot-long, 26-foot-wide bridge across South Boulevard. The $20 million bridge will connect the firm’s existing headquarters to its recently acquired 900,000-square-foot expansion building.
