    This vital bridge is also needed for equestrians which was not mentioned in the article. Before this bridge was opened to public traffic, a ride between Arcata and Mckinleyville entailed either wading/ swimming the Mad River at the mouth, or through the gravel operation off Giuntoli Lane OR riding across the old bridges on highway 101. Yes, I and others have done that in our teenage years. How much better to have a multi-use bridge for non-motorized traffic.
