Mitchell Park Bridge to Magical Playground Reopens

Mitchell Park Bridge to Magical Playground Reopens

The City replaced the Mitchell Park pedestrian and bicycle bridge with a wider, pre-fabricated steel bridge in order to accommodate more foot and bike traffic. Construction ended on September 13 and the bridge opened to the public on September 17. The contractor is still clearing some gravel and the City will continue to work on improving the landscaping near the bridge.

The new bridge is of similar arch truss form and color scheme. It also provides a wider path of travel to align with the new ramps that were installed as part of the Magical Bridge Playground project.
