Sunday night BDB Moon Walk participants should enjoy perfect weather conditions and a view much like this.
And, as we move upstream a few yards to the Two Rivers Bridge...
The near-full moon over the Two Rivers Bridge and I-430 on Friday evening. Work continues to progress rapidly on the Two Rivers Bridge.
It looks like a bridge! There is now structure from bank to bank.
This project will open up Two Rivers Park to more users and create a major link in what will be a remarkable bike route to Pinnacle Mountain State Park and beyond. I don't claim to have facts to back this up, but I will go out on a limb and say that very few trail and park networks exist in the US that will surpass what we will have. Cyclists can easily travel in relative safety over routes that reach to hills and mountains to the west, the Grand Prairie to the east, with a number of connected parks and many, many miles of bike trails and road routes in between. Mountain bikers can enjoy a spin on the pavement en route to a number of quality single-track opportunities in the heart of town. By next summer, riding options from the River Trail will have grown immensely, especially for those wise souls who prefer not to ride on the open road.
Bill Harris, the Coney man, has been setting up shop on the North side of the BDB for lunch and into the evening. I can think of worse options for a cool Fall day than a Coney or a bowl of chili and a lunch hour walk on the BDB.
