Rejoice, people! The CSX Bridge connecting Riverdale Park Station (& Whole Foods, Gold’s Gym, District Taco, MOD Pizza, Burtons Grill, Starbucks) with the Discovery District in Riverdale Park will open on June 22nd! These grumpy “road closed” signs will soon be no more!
According to Alan Thompson, Mayor of Riverdale Park: “It is with immense pleasure that I announce the opening date for the new bridge and associated roadway to connect Riverdale Park Station across the CSX tracks to Lafayette Avenue, Rivertech Court, and the Discovery District (formerly known as M Square). The bridge and roadway will have a ribbon cutting next Friday, June 22, at 9:30 am, with the bridge opening to the public at 10:00 am. We’ve been waiting a long time, and I’m glad it’s about to open!”
