Wright State University, the Cities of Fairborn and Beavercreek and Clark State Community College celebrated the opening of a new pedestrian and bicycle bridge over Interstate 675 Aug. 28.
Wright State Way bridge will provide a safe and convenient route between Wright State and the Mall at Fairfield Commons and the surrounding area, which includes Soin Medical Center and a Clark State classroom building.
The 467-foot long, 12-foot wide steel-beamed bridge connects Center Park Boulevard in Fairborn with the intersection of Pentagon and Commons boulevards in Beavercreek.
The bridge starts on the Fairborn side at the Wright Executive Center office plaza — across from the Wright State campus — and connects to a bike and pedestrian path near Sam’s Club.
The ramp leading to the bridge is compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
