T-30 and counting!

You are invited to the Grand Opening ceremony for the new Union Street Railroad Bridge across the Willamette River in Salem. This rehabilitated bridge - built in 1913 and now converted to non-motorized use by the city - will tie Wallace Marine Park to Riverfront Park.

Salem Mayor Janet Taylor, who helped move this project forward and is now working on a second bike and pedestrian bridge, was recently honored by the BTA with an Alice B. Toeclips Award for that work.

Saturday, April 18th, 10:00 am, Riverfront Park (North End)
Ceremony, parade, entertainment and refreshments for the whole family (but they'll probably give you some even if you come without your whole family too.)
