New Trail Services Building at River Park


(can be seen at Columbia Crossing Building, River Park) 

This mosaic is a donation from Rivertownes  of the buring of the bridge.  This mosaic was created and completed by volunteers and event attendees from the 150th anniversary of the bridge burning events, and has been housed at different locations since then in Wrightsville, Marietta, and Columbia. It is now in its permanent home at Columbia Crossing. 

Please note:

The lights on the Veterans Memorial Bridge will be turned off starting tonight, June 16, 2015

due to the infestation of the mayflies.  

Please make sure you bring a flashlight if you are walking the bridge.  Please remember to drive slowly across the bridge.
