Photos of the Mike Gotch Memorial Bridge – From Beginning to Finished Project

A reader, Joan Ward, left a comment a few days ago stating that she had photos of the entire construction process of the new Mike Gotch Memorial Bridge, the proper name of the new Rose Creek Bikeway and Pedestrian Bridge Project that officially opened a little over a week ago.

I met Joan yesterday and she provided me with a CD containing the photos she’d taken from her balcony which affords us all the perfect view of the entire construction project. This is such a wonderful gift. Thank you, Joan.

The Mike Gotch bridge now provides a valuable connection between the bay and the beach communities. I’ve had an opportunity to ride on it a few times and it is truly a well designed, and aesthetically pleasing gem.

The bridge, named after a former councilmember, was dedicated on April 20, 2012.
