The bridge is scheduled to open on Sunday, Nov. 24, at 2 p.m. A ribbon-cutting ceremony is planned on the east side of the bridge, closest to the parking lot at 3700 Commonwealth Avenue, with comments from city officials and partners, as well as an overview of park improvements by city staff.
The event is planned to occur rain or shine.
The 120-foot bridge is the final link in a one-kilometer loop through the Four Mile Run Park. The trail currently dead-ends at the bridge, but once opened, will connect the park to Route 1 and the Mount Vernon Trail.
“The installation of the bridge is a significant element of the Four Mile Run Restoration Plan, which improves connectivity throughout the park,” according to a press release. “The bridge provides access to the wetlands, which were restored in 2016 for walking, passive enjoyment, and ecological education programming.”
