Mayor Walsh, the City of Syracuse Department of Engineering and its construction team were joined by Candy Edwards and children from her neighborhood day care at the West Colvin street Bridge reopening today.

After a four month reconstruction project, Mayor Walsh helped reopen the West Colvin Street bridge over Onondaga Creek. The bridge between Kirk Park Drive and Onondaga Creek Parkway now has a new high performance surface engineered to last 70 years. That’s great news. Even better is how this project brought our community together.

Each week during this project, Candy Edwards and the children from her daycare around the corner from the bridge brought lunch to the construction crew. Today, the work crew invited Candy and the kids to have the honor of cutting the ribbon to reopen the bridge. It was a joyful neighborhood celebration. Thank you to the team who reconstructed the bridge and to the children who reminded us we are one family.
