Mexicantown Bridge Opens Today
Posted by Alison Trost on May 5, 2010 at 9:00 AM.

The new Mexicantown Bagely Street Pedestrian Bridge in Detroit opens today.

Several photos of the bridge are included in the MDOT brochure describing the project, available online by clicking here.

A Cinco de Mayo festival, organized by the Southwest Detroit Business Association and the Detroit Consulate of Mexico, begins at 1 p.m. in salute of 200 years of Mexican independence. Michigan DOT’s ribbon cutting will be at 2 p.m. and will include unveiling community art and a parade across the new pedestrian bridge.

As the first cable-stayed bridge in the state, the Mexicantown Bagley Street Pedestrian Bridge is part of Michigan’s $230 million I-75 Gateway Project.
