Runners, walkers and outdoor enthusiasts have much to look forward this spring as the Downtown Bridges & Trails project has made some significant progress this month. In case you weren’t close by on December 20th when engineering crews moved the historic Ice House Bridge to its new position across Dry Creek, you can watch the time lapsed video here. The bridge will now connect six miles of scenic trails along the creek from Sierra College Blvd. to Darling Way.
The completion of the Downtown Bridges & Trails project is inline with the city’s ongoing focus on quality of life for residents. Studies show that neighborhood walkability has become a key selling point for those choosing where to live, and that pedestrian-friendly neighborhoods are more economically productive, healthier and safer.
Connecting Vernon Street Town Square and Downtown Roseville as a whole is another key factor in the project…highlighting the city’s significant efforts in encouraging residents to come and enjoy the vibrant downtown core through events, restaurants, shopping and services. The project is expected to be completed in the spring of 2019.
