The new Midland Trail connector bridge

On Thursday I rode to a opening ceremony for the Legacy Loop here in Colorado Springs, it was the start of construction for a new trail head/event center. The LL goes around the city for 10K, so it will be a non-traffic runner/bicyclist trail. I also rode over to the newly installed bridge that will finally reconnect the Midland Trail to the America the Beautiful Park in downtown. The old link was taken away when they rebuilt the I-25 Intersection and the detour is a PIA on city streets so the new connector should be "on line" in Sept. 2017!!
Well at least the Bridge connector is finally set up, now hopefully it will be finished by Sept. 2017 and the Midland Trail reconnected!
