Ride on: Folsom to unveil new bike/ped bridge
Folsom city officials invite the public to the dedication ceremony and grand opening of the $2.12 million East Bidwell bike/pedestrian overcrossing.
The event will take place at the south end of the bridge approach at 9 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 6, rain or shine. Local cycling enthusiasts will join Mayor Jeff Starsky, City Manager Kerry Miller, Parks & Recreation Director Robert Goss and Senior Trails Planner Jim Konopka to officially open the 475-foot-long, 12-foot-wide bridge.
The new bridge offers a safe crossing over busy East Bidwell Street and completes the final link of the Humbug Willow Creek Trail from the El Dorado County line to Folsom Boulevard.
