GAINESVILLE - Six-year-old Mills Lothridge and 5-year-old Bella Dunagan joined their grandfather, Gainesville Mayor Danny Dunagan, this morning, as the first citizens to officially cross Gainesville's pedestrian bridge.

Shortly afterward, local citizens were using the bridge to pass from downtown to midtown. Those citizens included James Weber and his dog Tebo, who is the first dog to walk across the new bridge.

The City of Gainesville is planning an official bridge opening and ribbon cutting for the bridge sometime in the next month.
