Opening of Yards/Teague Connector Bridge,
November 22, 2011
A ghastly weather day did not deter the city and Forest City Washington from holding their dedication ceremony for the new 627-foot-long, 20-foot-wide pedestrian bridge connecting the Yards Park
and Diamond Teague Park
, across from Nationals Park
. For more about these photos and this project, see the accompanying blog post
