This Saturday, both the old and new Johnson Street bridges will be party central, with opening day celebrations for the new bridge scheduled for noon til 5pm. To accommodate the bash, both bridges will be closed to vehicle traffic from 7am Friday til about 9pm Saturday.
Goings-on will include a picnic, music, food trucks, vintage cars and emergency vehicles, things to keep the wee ones amused and more. Will you be the first person to scamper across the new bridge?
