Remarks at the Folsom Road Bridge Opening Ceremony
March 28, 2009. Remarks at the Folsom Road Bridge Opening Ceremony. This is more than a bridge – it is a monument to those who fought so hard and so long to bring it to fruition.
The new Folsom Road Bridge should be nicknamed “The Bridge to Somewhere,” replacing a vital transportation link in our region for the 18,000 commuters who have struggled daily between El Dorado County and South Placer County since the closure of the Folsom Dam Road.
This was one of those projects that came about the old fashioned way – by merit and by the determination of our region’s local, state and federal officials throughout those years, who beat the drums and carried the day.
