GILBERT, AZ - The Town of Gilbert will hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the new Gilbert pedestrian bridge opening at 6:00 p.m. on August 26, 2021, near the base of the bridge, 393 Neely Street.

The opening of the new facility that many have been waiting for has finally arrived. This ceremony will be placed on the west side of the bridge near the market. Many people will attend the event, including Mayor Brigette Peterson, city staff, and key community partners. Parking is available on Neely Street for participants, but it is important to note that no private transports are parked in the bike lanes.

The City of Gilbert partnered with the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) and the Union Pacific Rail Road (UPRR) to complete this pedestrian bridge. Among the construction of this bridge, it is expected that users of this road will feel safe. As a gateway to Gilbert's downtown Heritage District, the bridge will also provide a safe crossing of the railroad tracks for Western Powerline Multi-Use Path users.

The bridge's design was picked by the community and puts a light on the iconic shape, also has the image of a train and rails. It is due to an act of honor for the railroad heritage in the area.

Participants who take part in this event will have the opportunity to get prizes during the giveaway event, which is also carried out to enliven this ceremony. In addition, Kona Ice will also provide treats to the first 200 participants. What are you waiting for?
