New Bridge on the Mexican Ditch Trail

Here are some pictures of the Mexican Ditch bridge installation today. This is the northern bridge. I have a picture of Chas and Cindy because they’re the engineers who designed the bridge abutments and they were pleased to see that the bridge actually fit on them. Muscle Powered wrote grants to get funding for the bridges from Recreational Trails and NV Question 1 , Lumos and the local branch of the the ASCE (American Society of Civil Engineers) designed the bridges.

After the section of trail by the new freeway is finished next summer, there will be a continuous, off-street bike path (unpaved in some parts so you’ll need a mountain bike) between Roop Street and Mexican Dam – these new bridges allow you to get from the River Park at the end of 5th St. to Silver Saddle Ranch on a trail that goes along the Mexican ditch.
