You're Invited to a Community Meeting, February 12

We're gearing up to have a community meeting regarding four design concepts for the proposed Minto Island Bicycle and Pedestrian Bridge on February 12 in the Salem Public Library's Anderson Rooms.

We'd love to have you stop in and learn more about what we're thinking re: the bridge project. We'll be having an open house from 5-7 PM.

Please join us if you can.

If you can't wait, you can learn more about the project and take survey here.

Please feel free to forward this invitation to others. We're looking for as much input as possible regarding the four conceptual designs.

Imagine the New Bridge

Imagine the wonderful Willamette view we will have as we walk across this historic Union Street Railroad Bridge when the walking/biking restoration is complete!

The weather has delayed some of the construction activities the last few weeks, but we are anticipating an Opening Ceremony in late March.

Friends of Two Bridges (this includes the projected Minto-Brown Bridge) is a committee dedicated to the completion and maintenance of these projects.
