Douglas Bridge Now Open

Date: 06/04/2009 


Residents again have two ways to cross the North Platte River in Douglas as the Yellowstone Highway (WYO 87/20/26 and Business 25/85) bridge opened June 3.

The first traffic crossed the five-lane bridge at around noon Wednesday. The new bridge replaces an 86-year-old structure that was closed last spring due to its deteriorating condition. Featuring two walking lanes and decorative boulevard-style lighting, the bridge also showcases Douglas’ mascot - the Jackalope, with custom iron cutouts along its railings.
