Cinco de Mayo: Celebrate South Park’s New Bridge

You are invited to participate in a celebration of the new South Park 14th Avenue Bridge this Thursday, May 5, at the south end of the bridge at 14th Avenue S. and Dallas Ave. S.  No, the new bridge isn’t built yet, but the funds to build it have been secured.  The image shows what the replacement bridge would like in place.

Join King County Executive Dow Constantine, members of the King County Council, and other elected officials along with funding partners and members of the South Park Community who have made construction of a new South Park 14th Avenue Bridge possible.

Following the celebration, you are invited to stay in South Park for the many festivities planned by South Park residents and merchants in honor of Cinco de Mayo Day.

The South Park Bridge was closed in mid-2010 due to its aging condition.  The county estimates the new bridge will open by mid-2013, with project completion expected in late 2013.  The project is expected to employ about 125 people during the estimated 32-month construction period.
