Folsom's New Bridge Opens Today...

By
Real Estate Agent with Lyon Real Estate, Fair Oaks CA (Sacramento Area) DRE# 00809499

New Folsom BridgeAs a result of 9/11, one of the main arteries connecting the two sides of Folsom, The Folsom Dam Road, has been closed since 2003. It's been a real drag for those needing to cross the river, as there were only two other bridges to accomodate the 18,000 cars that had crossed the dam daily.


The dam road closing also clogged the streets of Historic Old Town Folsom with commuter traffic enroute to picturesque two-lane Rainbow Bridge.

Rainbow BridgeThe poor old town shop keepers have been struggling, as shoppers and restaurant patrons have been reluctant to tackle the traffic and parking snafu.


Now after 6 years of traffic nightmares, the new Folsom Lake Crossing bridge opens today! The planned capacity is 40,000 cars per day, with 4 lanes, plus bike and pedestrian lanes. Whoo... what a load off for the people of Folsom!

Old Town FolsomSo get shopping in Old Town Folsom and help support the businesses that have struggled for so long. Antiques, candles, collectibles, crystals, candy, clothing, great restaurants... it's all there. And the drive is so much easier now that the new bridge is open. Hooray!!!

I drove over it on the way back from sailing on the lake this afternoon, just 1 1/2 hours after it opened.  We zipped home, just like the old days when the dam was open.  It was so cool, and seemed so short for such a big impact.  It's not nearly as picturesque as the othr two bridges, but what a needed structure!.
