The City of Las Vegas celebrated the opening of two connections in the miles of trails that snake through southern Nevada.

Two new pedestrians bridges were officially opened Tuesday. The first bridge crosses Lake Mead Boulevard near Buffalo Drive. The other crosses Cheyenne Avenue at Buffalo Drive. The bridges connect the nearly 50 miles of trails built and maintained by the city. The trails feature lighting, rest areas, pet waste stations, trash cans and landscaping for walkers, joggers and bikers to enjoy.

The bridges are part of a $4.7 million project to improve trails around southern Nevada including the cultural corridor that opened earlier this summer in downtown Las Vegas. 

The money for the project came from the sale of land owned by the Bureau of Land Management. City of Las Vegas Mayor Pro-Tem Stavros Anthony and City Councilwoman Lois Tarkanian will be at celebration.
