The Fredericksburg region celebrated the reopening of the Chatham Bridge. Work to rehabilitate the bridge began 16 months ago.
The reopening celebration saw speeches from local officials in attendance. During her speech, Fredericksburg Mayor Mary Katherine Greenlaw announced that a river trail from Dixon Park to Motts Run Reservoir connected by the bridge would be coming up soon.
Stafford County Board of Supervisors Chair Crystal Vaunch thanked many of the supervisors past and present who worked to make the rehabilitation a reality. This included former Aquia District Supervisor Paul Milde, outgoing Hartwood District Supervisor Gary Snellings, and current George Washington District Supervisor Tom Coen.
