The bridge along Main Street in mid-town features gardens, benches and of some of Salado’s original art.
The Green Walking Bridge is a very rare lenticular truss bridge that was brought here by the Texas Department of Transportation from Dodd’s Creek in Coryell County in 1997. Most bridges of this design were constructed in the New England area, but in 1990, eight were located in Texas – four in San Antonio and four on out of service roadways. They are the only examples of this rare bridge type west of the Mississippi River.
This was the first project for KSB Gardeners; an overgrown mix of once lovely formal plants has been remade into a beautiful native garden for our community and visitors to enjoy. The project is supported by corporate sponsors Sue Ellen Slagel and Melanie Kirchmeier from Century 21 Bill Bartlett Realty, Dave Matthews from First State Bank and Clare Hartman from First Community Title; professional landscaping is provided by Terra Living.
