About the Bridge
The Matt Kelly Urban Trail Bridge makes a graceful arch over Cedar Avenue, connecting Buffalo Park on the north side of Cedar Avenue with McMillan Mesa open space on the south side, and providing bicyclists and pedestrians safe and pleasant passage over a busy section of roadway. It is located on the Flagstaff portion of the Arizona Trail, which is part of an 800-mile trail system that stretches across the state from Utah to Mexico.
The structure has a span of 138.5 feet, and a total length of 194.5 feet. It is 14 feet in width, and rises 19 feet above Cedar Avenue at its midpoint.
Southwest Contractor magazine awarded the bridge Arizona's "Best of 2007" for a concrete project.
The bridge is named for a young man who, while riding his bicycle along Cedar Avenue, was struck and killed by a drunk driver, at a spot not far from the bridge.
The Matt Kelly Urban Trail Bridge was dedicated in 2007.
