On Apr. 29, 2018, the city officially opened the Love Grove Memorial Bridge, providing an additional access for the Love Grove neighborhood. The $5 million bridge was one of the largest of the 38 projects approved by voters in the 2014 Transportation Bond.
The two-lane bridge crosses Burnt Mill Creek to One Tree Hill Way on the other side and features a sidewalk for additional connectivity to the neighborhood. Construction on the bridge began in February 2017. Prior to the installation of the new bridge, the only access to the neighborhood could be blocked by train traffic.
Love Grove access
A new access, providing a connection for the back of the Love Grove neighborhood to 23rd Street. This neighborhood is currently only served with one entrance, which can be blocked by train traffic. Another entrance will guarantee access to this neighborhood, regardless of train schedules.
Addresses a long-held concern in the area about the need for another access into/out of the neighborhood.
