Streetsblog missed the opening festivities just over a week ago, but today got a chance to ride the newly opened Red Car walk/bike bridge over the L.A. River in Atwater Village. The bridge is located on the historic Red Car streetcar pier walls immediately downstream from the Glendale-Hyperion Bridge. Officially it is a pedestrian bridge, but it is definitely open to and used plenty by cyclists.
