A note from councilman Don Moffitt to the bike and ped mailing list
Marvin Williams just announced that the bridge is now officially open.Yay!Don Moffitt
Long time readers of durham.io will note that this bridge is famous mostly for being horribly late and very much over budget, having originally been scheduled for completion last July and having already received a “mission accomplished” style ribbon cutting ceremony last October. I’ve posted about its delays no less than five times (here and here and here and here and here…) and probably more, but at some point I just lost count.
Anyway, cyclists and pedestrians rejoice! This is the final missing piece required to hook the trail up to Southpoint mall (and indeed, all the way to the Chatham County line), so downtown residents are now able to bike or ped all the way down there on the trail (and vice versa).
