Bentonville, AR... Highly anticipated multi-modal elevated bridge project has broken ground; proposed opening targeted for middle of 2024.
Bentonville residents and visitors will soon be the beneficiaries of improved access to the Razorback Greenway and All-American trails near the future Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art expansion. Trail improvements will feature a unique multi-modal bridge that extends over NE A Street with two sides, one for Razorback Greenway multi-use trail and the other for the All-American Mountain Bike Trail that safely separates each user group. The new 1053-foot-long Greenway extension with nearly 1000 feet completely on piers will create an elevated trail experience woven through the existing tree canopy.
Construction of the elevated dual-purpose pedestrian and mountain bike bridge project began last week. Trailblazers, a 501(c)3 focusing on innovative trail and outdoor recreation amenity development, will oversee the construction of the new bridge in collaboration with Bentonville Parks and Recreation. Crossland Construction is the contractor for the project. Once built, ongoing upkeep and maintenance of improvements will continue by Bentonville Parks and Recreation. Improved trail access, trail extension, and the new multi-modal pedestrian bridge are made possible with support from members of the Walton family.
