City Celebrates New Bridge Saturday

THE NATOMAS BUZZ | @natomasbuzz
The city’s s newest bicycle and pedestrian bridge over Interstate 80, linking north and south Natomas to downtown, will be celebrated Saturday morning.
The public is invited to join city councilmembers Angelique Ashby and Steve Cohn, the bridge project team and members of both the south and north Natomas transportation management associations along with neighbors and community members 9:30 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 15. The event site is just west of the baseball diamond at Peregrine Park, 3031 Guadalajara Way.
The project includes a nearly two-block-long bridge over the freeway and a smaller bridge across the West Drainage Canal along with new connections to existing bike trails. Nearly 90 percent of the $6.1 million project comes from federal grants, with the remainder from state and local gas and sales tax funds.
The event will also commemorate Sacramento’s rise to silver status in bicycle friendliness, announced last month by the League of American Bicyclists.
