The official RCID maps show the second bridge, and the location of the construction wall is consistent with the path going over the bridge.

Good find- out of curiousity, did this go through SFWMD permitting, and if so do the plans show a stub end for the pedestrian pathway that would indicate a development b/w GF and MK?

A new resort with a monorail stop would require a very creative design. The resort would be on the side of the express beam so the resort loading would require access somewhat similar to the Contemporary. However, given the location of the beam, the loading area may be over water which would create a new set of hurdles when it comes to construction. Of course, there are two other options. One would be to move the resort beam to the outside loop. The other would be to demolish part of the beams and re-route over land. If that happened, obviously the monorails would close for a period of time, requiring another alternative to get to MK. I know that last option seems a little far fetched and costly, but it did seem that there may have been at least one person alluding to the fact the monorail could be closed for some period of time.

No, there was no SFWMD permit for this.

So how's the construction going on this? Any chance it may be open by September or October? I feel like it's been moving very slowly

I’ve always been all for this. It will properly link both Poly and Grand Flo to MK by foot.

With Disney monorails and busing becoming so cumbersome, a walkway is perfect and a major reason why we prefer the Epcot Resorts.
Its for people that have not got enough of walking for eight hours.. at mk personally please roll out my taxi” monorail ...
