New Elevated Bike and Pedestrian Bridge Now Open to the Public

New Elevated Bridge Opens for Cyclists & Pedestrians

Fleet Feet Little Rock

The long-awaited mountain bike and pedestrian bridge on NE A Street is now open for public use. The completion of the multi-modal elevated bridge project has resulted in improved access to the Razorback Greenway and All-American trails near the future Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art expansion for residents and visitors of Bentonville. The trail features a unique two-lane bike/pedestrian bridge that extends over NE A Street, with two designated sides – one for the Razorback Greenway multi-use trail and the other for the All-American Mountain Bike Trail – that safely separates each user group. The Greenway extension, which is 1053 feet long and nearly 1000 feet completely on piers, creates an exceptional trail experience woven through the existing tree canopy.

Crossland Construction was the contractor for the project, and the City of Bentonville has officially accepted the flyover bridge. Bentonville Parks and Recreation will be responsible for the upkeep and maintenance of the bridge. Thanks to the generous support of members of the Walton family, the project was able to include improved trail access, trail extension, and a new bike and pedestrian bridge. The public is invited to a ribbon-cutting celebration at 5:00 pm on Wednesday, May 8, to mark the official opening of the flyover bridge.

  1. Was very cool being a small part of this project as the Project Manager for Crossland Heavy’s Structural Steel supplier on these bridges, W&W|AFCO Steel, here in Little Rock. Knowing that I would have opportunity to ride what I helped build is always fun.
