Delta Ponds Bridge Opens Tomorrow

The City of Eugene has announced that the new Delta Ponds Bridge will officially open tomorrow!  After an earlier dedication on September 11th, the city had to close the bridge down so the contractor could finish up the railing and lighting before it was ready to  be really put into use.

There is an impromptu ride planned for tomorrow (Tuesday, Nov. 16) at 5:30 p.m.  Meet at River Play Park (on the Ruth Bascom path below Skinner Butte) and ride together over to this great new bridge.  It should be getting dark enough by then to enjoy the new “aesthetic lighting” as well as the regular path lighting that was installed.  If you can’t get out there tomorrow, be sure to ride out there and check it out soon, it’s a beautiful and useful addition to Eugene’s great bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure.

  1. The great thing about more people riding bikes is they offset carbon emissions to help balance out the car use of folks who absolutely are physicaly unable to walk or bike more.

  2. My family took a walk across the new bridge the other day and were excited to be passed by six bikes and one other walker on the bridge and the connector path to the bridge from the Riverbank path! I am sure some of the traffic was curiosity, but ’twas cool nonetheless!
