The Johnson City Board of Commissioners joined members of the Johnson City Noon Rotary Club to celebrate the completion of the permanent footbridge at Founders Park with a ribbon cutting ceremony last Tuesday.
The Johnson City Noon Rotary Club financed the construction of the permanent, 36-foot bridge across Brush Creek that leads to the great lawn area of Founders Park.
“The Noon Rotary Club saw a need and approached the city about facilitating a solution,” said Johnson City Mayor Jenny Brock. “They have a long history of partnering with the city, and we appreciate their willingness to do so again. The temporary bridge saw a lot of use, and having a permanent bridge at this end of Founders Park is a great asset to everyone who comes out to enjoy this space.”
The club donated about $50,000 to the project. The Johnson City Public Works Department was responsible for the design and construction of the bridge, which began back during the summer.
