A bridge was installed earlier this week over San Luis Creek near Prado Road and South Higuera Street to provide a safe link for pedestrians and cyclists to the Bob Jones Bike Trail.
People were having a difficult time accessing the trail safely because there are no sidewalks on the Prado bridge, said Mike McGuire, city engineer.
The $302,000 bridge, being installed by Souza Construction of San Luis Obispo, was paid for mostly through federal grant money.
