The urban renewal the city undertook in the 60's/70's envisioned the downtown to be developed with Plaza Levels connected by pedestrian bridges to remove people from the streets.

We know how that vision played out. Jackson Square's plaza connected to the Art Gallery's plaza by a single pedestrian bridge. Done.

Unfortunately the mind set of too many remains mired in that time. The solution is not separation of people from the streets, but rather a true sharing of the space through the implementation of complete streets. The only thing standing in the way is a generation of entitled car drivers who see no reason to share at all. Can't really blame them. We've spent 60 years managing their expectations by catering to their every whim.
