Celebrate With Us - Ribbon Cutting
The Erie Parkway Bridge has been accessible for some time, but now that the heavy lifting is done it is time to celebrate the success of this iconic endeavor. The success of the design was made possible through close collaboration between Town departments, and support from the community.
"We are proud of the design of this iconic landmark for the Town of Erie, and we are excited about how it will serve the community as well as being a beautiful structure. The bridge will serve as a landmark for the Town for years to come," said Mayor Jennifer Carroll.
Join us for light refreshments and to recognize the accomplishments. Most importantly, join us to witness this momentous occasion of Town history.
