Should Indianapolis be put in this list? I know it has a network of interconnected skyways that connect various hotels to the Indiana Convention Center. This skyway system also includes the Artsgarden which is above two intersection downtown streets. I have no futher information on the skyway. Chris4682 May 2007

I believe Indianapolis should be included in this list if someone can muster up some information. 07/08 —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:01, 17 July 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Indianapolis has a medium sized network of skyways and underground tunnels that connects various buildings in the downtown of Indianapolis. This includes( but is not limited to): the Artsgarden, Circle center mall, the Indianapolis Convention Center, the Statehouse, multiple government buildings, and seven hotels around the area. Lucas Oil stadium and the New Marriott Building will soon join this list.The entire system is 13 city blocks.Jherbertz (talk) 03:52, 4 February 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]


The article "Footbridge" redirects here. This is not appropriate because (in British English at least) the term footbridge can refer to any walkway which is not suitable for vehicles (e.g. over a river).--NicholasJones 17:18, 5 Feb 2005 (UTC)

Same in the U.S. --SPUI (talk) 20:33, 5 Feb 2005 (UTC)
I've now removed that redirect. Loganberry | Talk 01:19, 12 Jun 2005 (UTC)

I've now also deleted the reference in the skyway definition that list footbridge as a synonym for skyway. Footbridge has its own article and is a far broader category that skyway. Even in urban settings, footbridge is much more likely to refer to an open air bridge across a river, highway, or other obstruction. DHimmelspach 01:42, 7 February 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Separate pages?[edit]

Should this article be divided into separate pages? The number of alternate definitions seems to continue to grow ("skyway" is a common name for highway bridges, for instance). If this page should be moved/separated, what would be good names? Also should this article become a disambig page, or should it remain, but with a link to skyway (disambiguation) up at the top? (I'd kinda like it to stay here, but I'm biased since I live in Minneapolis ;-) User:Mulad (talk) 07:07, Feb 18, 2005 (UTC)

2 separate pages are a possibility. in any case as it stands i think the article title should be skywalk which is the predominant usage of the term as discussed here. Covalent 04:32, 15 June 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

9/11 paragraph[edit]

Is it necessary or appropriate to have the 9/11 paragraph included? Many things were destroyed, and unless this is to be a 9/11 damage encyclopedia I believe it should be removed.

I agree totally and removed it. This might be appropriate in an article about skyways in New York City, but not here. It does nothing to further anyone's understanding of what a skyway is and does. DHimmelspach 01:57, 7 February 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Suggestion: Include something about Grand Canyon Skywalk currently under construction.

The image Image:Mpls skyways.png, which is linked inline from this article as a map of Minneapolis under "List of cities with notable skyway/skywalk systems" has been listed for deletion at WP:IFD. The reason is that, though the image is from a US government website, it has a caption indicating that it is the product of a local city, and thus it is potentially copyrighted. Please note that this inline link can be replaced with a link to the source image - - if desired. Please see WP:IFD if you would like to offer an opinion about the image. Thank you. --BigDT 15:25, 3 February 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Skyway for prisoners[edit]

The Seattle "skyway" that's referenced doesn't have windows, is on the top floor, and connects the King County Courthouse to the Correctional Facility. I'm pretty sure it's used for prisoner transport. New York has something similar; other cities probably do as well. Are these skyways, or something else?

As I remember, yes one connects the jail that was built in the 1990s to the Manhattan Criminal Courthouse to its south. A Washington Heights hospital in the 170s also has a skyway above, ah Ft Washington Avenue, I think it is. Must get on my bicycle and do some personal research. Maybe we can make up a prisoner skywalk section. Jim.henderson 01:58, 21 June 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Toronto does not really have a notable skyway system, as the chart currently indicates. There is a skyway connecting part of the route between Union Station and the CN Tower, but that's hardly a notable system. Not sure where the reference to 15 buildings over 13 blocks comes from. There are a few skyways scattered across town (the downtown Bay store, Ryerson, etc.), as there are in any large city, but they are quite a distance from one another and they do not form part of an interconnected system. Most of Toronto's interbuilding connections are underground, through the PATH system. Skeezix1000 15:21, 20 July 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I believe there's a skyway system in the Johannesburg CBD, I'm not sure if it canbe considered notable as I don't often go into the CBD, but if anyone knows something about it and is willing, can you please add it to this article--Part Time Security 16:05, 28 June 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]


This article desperately needs a History Section.If I had time, I would write one to start with, but I am far to busy In Real Life at the moment. Are there any other editors who would like to contribute in this regard?

Vilvoorde, Flanders[edit]

Should not be put in this list! It refers to a skyway, as in elevated motorway. This is not exactly "a skyway, catwalk, sky bridge, or skywalk is a type of pedway consisting of an enclosed or covered bridge between two buildings in an urban setting". Reeze2000 —Preceding undated comment added 16:19, 7 June 2010 (UTC).Reply[reply]

Instead of Vilvoorde, Brussels should be added, there is a skyway between the two Belgacom Towers. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 13:46, 24 November 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Skywalk redirects here. There should be a link to Grand Canyon Skywalk with the other disambiguation notifications at the beginning of the article. (I found the templates much too confusing to add another one on the fly.) --BjKa (talk) 13:49, 30 March 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
