New pedestrian bridge to connect Dunwoody neighborhoods

A giant crane delivered a 145-foot pedestrian bridge in Dunwoody on Tuesday, installed as part of a pathway that aims to connect communities.

The bridge, delivered in three pieces, crosses the North Fork of Nancy Creek near Old Spring House Lane as a new section of the Dunwoody Trailway. Construction crews are still working to complete the project and hope to open the bridge by the end of March, Dunwoody Parks Director Brent Walker said.

“The goal is to get people out of their cars so they can walk, run or bike throughout Dunwoody,” Walker said in a statement.

The new section of the Trailway will go across the creek and continue west toward Perimeter Center East. A future phase of the Trailway will extend even further toward Perimeter Mall, the city said.
