The East ParkCenter Bridge opened to traffic on Tuesday, September 29, 2009 -- nearly six weeks ahead of schedule. Vehicle, bicycle and pedestrian traffic started flowing across the span following a short dedication ceremony.

How do Greenbelt users on the north side of the river access the East ParkCenter bridge?
Greenbelt users can access the bridge via the new ParkCenter Boulevard for the near term by using the interim path (click Greenbelt Map for map). In the future the Greenbelt will run closer to the river, replacing the existing path along the new ParkCenter Boulevard. The new Greenbelt will be completed in pieces, starting with the Marianne Williams Park, which is now under construction by the City of Boise, and with the adjacent Harris Ranch development in coming years.
The East ParkCenter Bridge is a river crossing that now connects ParkCenter Boulevard to Warm Springs Avenue and gives Barber Valley residents a better route to downtown Boise.
