Please join the City of Ferndale and project partners on Saturday, December 2nd, 2023, to celebrate the Thornton Street Overpass with a Grand Opening Event.
The event will begin with an Open House on the Thornton Overpass Bridge at 12:00 PM where guests can chat with the project team, check out City and County transportation vehicles with a special public vehicle showcase, and take in the incredible views before the road opens to public traffic.
At 1:00 PM, there will be a short ribbon cutting celebration, followed by a motorcade of City and County vehicles led by Ferndale Mayor, Greg Hansen. The Overpass will open at 3:00 PM to public traffic.
Walk, bike, skateboard, or sled to join us for this family-friendly celebration in reconnecting our city!
Please note that the Thornton Overpass will be closed to traffic during the event. Event parking will be along Thornton on each end of the new bridge.
