Denton Pedestrian Bridge Now Open


Denton, Texas – The City of Denton and special guests will officially dedicate and unveil the plaque for the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Pedestrian Bridge on Friday, June 14 at 10:30 a.m.  The bridge is now officially open for all cyclists and pedestrians.

Former Council Member Charlye Heggins pursued the naming of this high-profile bridge, which extends the Denton Rail Trail across Loop 288, connecting Denton neighborhoods and allowing for greater mobility. The City will not only dedicate the bridge, and honor its historic namesake and what it means for the Denton community, but will also honor Council Member Heggins for her contributions to this project.
