New Bridge Over Creek Open; Students A No Show

P9020659The new pedestrian bridge over Thornton Creek at the Knickerbocker Natural Area (20th Avenue NE) was open for business this morning but no students heading towards Sacajawea Elementary School turned up. As construction crews paused for an hour for the scheduled 8 AM – 9 AM opening, with a flagger standing by, the first people to use the new 85 foot bridge instead were three dog walkers.
The bridge will reopen this afternoon between 2:45 and 3:30 PM when school lets out. Even if you aren’t a student, this is an excellent chance to get a close-up view of the work that continues to be done to the creek.
Last night’s huge rainstorm left standing water around the construction area which was still cleaning up after Monday’s storm. But things were expected to get back on schedule within a day.
The bridge will continue to be open weekday mornings between 8 – 9 AM and again in the afternoons 2:45 – 3:30 PM until the project is completed sometime in October.
