Community Meeting: City to Present Proposed Royer Park Bridge Designs

Designs would revamp Royer Park and Downtown connections.

The bridges of Royer Park across Dry Creek are slated for a potential complete makeover and the city wants the public's input on their new look. 

City officials are considering two design concepts. 

Both plans weigh different pedestrian bridge ideas connecting Royer Park to the downtown area. And whether to relocate the Rube Nelson "Icehouse" Bridge to the southside of Veterans Memorial Hall across Dry Creek, or keep it on the northside.

The meeting will be held Thursday, Nov. 29 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the Tower Theater, 417 Vernon St.

Representatives from San Jose-based Mark Thomas & Company, Inc. and Roseville-based KPFF Consulting Engineers will present their designs and field questions.

Their designs can be reviewed beforehand online or in-person at the city's Civic Center on Vernon Street or in the Downtown Library, 225 Taylor St.  

When completed, the project will also include a paved bike trail. Grant and earmarked funds will be used to complete the project, laid out in the city's Downtown Specific Plan. 

City staff will take feedback on the two designs up until Dec. 6. To view the designs, provide feedback or for more information visit www.roseville.ca.us/DowntownBridges.

I ride my bike across that bridge twice a day. It works just fine. What we really need downtown is public restrooms!!!!

I'm for any plan that will reuse the Icehouse bridge!
