The Houston Street Viaduct was built in 1912, and neighborhood residents are planning to celebrate that landmark with a cyclovía on the bridge April 14.
The bridge will be closed from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. that day and turned into a big Trinity River block party. According to the flyer Bike Friendly Oak Cliff released today, the event will include kite flying, line dancing, a bike race, skateboarding, an urban market, music, a dog park and yoga.
Plus, it’s a rare chance to step onto the bridge with no cars present.
Today’s Dallas Morning News features a story about the day the bridge opened, Feb. 22, 2012.
