Town Council Opens New San Ramon Creek Footbridge

Town Council Opens New San Ramon Creek Footbridge 

The new route will benefit pedestrians and bicycle traffic


The Danville community can now enjoy a new route to access the downtown area. On Tuesday, May 18, 2021, the Danville Town Council took part in a ribbon-cutting ceremony to officially open the recently constructed footbridge connecting the Danville Town Green, a central community gathering and recreation space, to the new Riverwalk community and Diablo Road.

The bridge provides open access points in the north and east and allows users to access recreational activities without a car.  The alternative access to the downtown park will allow pedestrians and bicycle traffic to shorten their travel distance by a ½-mile and increase safety by avoiding three busy downtown intersections. Additionally, the bridge is compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and encourages access for individuals of all mobility levels to get closer to nature, the San Ramon Creek, as well as the Danville Library, the Community Center and the Village Theatre and Art Gallery.     

Consistent with various local plans, like the Parks, Recreation and Arts Strategic Plan, the project promotes active transportation and healthy recreation opportunities, such as bicycling, walking and running by connecting existing trail systems to one another for more fluid movement.  

For additional information, contact Public Information Officer Nicola Shihab at (925) 314-3336 or nshihab@danville.ca.gov.
