Bike Bridge Up: Santa Fe Trail, meet White Rock Lake
They did it. The first half went up Tuesday night. Here is a view looking southbound on Garland Rd.
Another view southbound:
And a view northbound:
Last night, during a pretty crazy thunderstorm, they put in the other half. Way to go, combined governmental agencies!
There is still more work to do. They have to put a concrete deck on this bridge and finish the bridge crossing over Winsted Dr. that completes the link to White Rock Lake (and to North Dallas, and Richardson and Plano!)
The bottom line? We should all be riding this by the end of the year, and then I’ll be riding this to my office and to downtown. This bike corridor will tranform this part of town in many ways.
