Marietta Opening New Pedestrian Bridge


MARIETTA, GA — A pedestrian bridge that’s part of a planned expansive trail system in Marietta is opening this week.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony for the Mountain to River Trail Pedestrian Bridge is scheduled for 11 a.m. on Tuesday at 358 West Atlanta St. in Marietta. The bridge near Brown Park is part of a trail that’s been 15 years in the making, according to city officials.

It stretches from Kennesaw Mountain through Marietta Square and to the city limits at Atlanta Street. That trail, city leaders say, will serve as the backbone for a planned trail system that will connect pedestrians and cyclists from throughout Marietta.

It also will connect currently separate trail systems across Cobb County, they say.
