City officials say the bridge will connect Dublin's historic district with the future Riverside Crossing Park and the Bridge Park development.

“We couldn’t be prouder to open this pedestrian and bicycle bridge over the Scioto River, which has been a vision of the Dublin community and Dublin City Council for decades,” says Megan O’Callaghan, Deputy City Manager and Chief Operating Officer in a news release.

“We know the end result is something Dublin residents can be extremely proud of. From the sleek main tower and suspension design to the “S” shaped bridge deck and special lighting features, this is truly a unique bridge that will serve as one of Dublin’s defining City icons.”
