Construction on the bridge was completed in September. The spot was identified as a priority project in the City’s Pedestrian and Bicycle Master Plan, as the new bridge replaces a fair-weather crossing that was often inaccessible due to high water levels, and improves safety, access and comfort on the trail.
Today, November 8, 2018 marked the finish line on a project long in the works.
The City of Alexandria’s Department of Transportation & Environmental Services, along with local volunteers and advocates, ceremonially cut a small ribbon, thus officially opening the new Holmes Run Trail pedestrian and bicycle bridge.
Residents were invited to join the celebration and receive free safety gear.
