Elevated North Branch Riverwalk Extension Moving Forward

The two-mile bridge will connect Clark and California parks

A new section of elevated pedestrian trail that will extend the North Branch riverwalk from Richard Clark Park in the south up to California Park at its northern point is moving forward. Once known as the North Branch Trail Addison Underbridge Connector, the new two-mile section of trail has been renamed the Riverview Bridge, DNAinfo reports. Those concerned about the city's finances can breath easy, as the project is being funded with federal dollars. Engineers working on the plan estimate the total cost of the project to be in the $10 million range. CDOT is expected to begin work on the new trail later this year, and anticipates a late 2017 opening.
