(Seguin) -- The city of Seguin Wednesday installed the final amenity to its Park West Sidewalk Project located at the corner of San Antonio and North Vaughan streets. Crews spent all day fastening the two piece bridge across Walnut Branch Creek. The 150 foot long bridge sits parallel to Vaughan Street and spans across Walnut Branch Creek. The bridge, which is also 8 feet wide, will help traffic pedestrians to and from the north and south sections of the park.
Project Manager Matt Pekar says the bridge is the last part of the MPO funded project to be completed -- an overall sidewalk project amounting to $973,862.
"I know the project has been in the works for a while and as far as construction goes, we've been working on the sidewalk and the access through the woods back here around the creek and around the park and this is going to be the last piece to get the sidewalk connected and this will provide access across the creek and provide excellent access to the parks," said Pekar.
Pekar says the best part of the project is that it ties into the existing Hike and Bike Trail that runs along the banks of the creek from New Braunfels Street to behind the Seguin Public Library.
In addition to the new bridge, park goers can now also enjoy an eight-tenths of a mile loop trail around Park West along with its ADA sidewalks, Splash pad and playscape amenities.
