It doesn’t look like much now, but very soon these modular pieces of steel — which are now on location — will be constructed into a temporary bridge, restoring access for all the (extremely patient) neighbors impacted by the Valencia Road closure.
When completed, the bridge will have two lanes and a pedestrian walkway. It will also be ready in time for commencement of the Valencia Elementary school year.
And many of you know there were more complexities that aren’t necessarily reflected in the site work, so we’re grateful to everyone for hanging in there while we got the kinks worked out.
We’ll update you when we know when the bridge will open. (Heck, we may even throw a party).
