Ribbon cutting for new pedestrian bridge set for March 26 on Kilgore campus

Kilgore College will hold an official ribbon cutting to celebrate the completion of the new pedestrian bridge over Highway 259 on the Kilgore campus.

The ribbon cutting is set for 10 a.m. Tuesday, March 26, at the site of the new bridge – located at 895 Ross Ave. on the Kilgore campus.

Speakers at the event will include KC President Dr. Brenda Kays, Kilgore Mayor Ronnie Spradlin; and KC student Kaitlyn Williams, of Arp.

In September of 2022, the KC Board of Trustees awarded RLM General Contractors as the contractor to demolish what was left of the old pedestrian bridge, and to build the new bridge that stands now.

The new bridge is ADA compliant with elevators on both sides and a 19-foot, 6-inch clearance – as opposed to the previous bridge’s 16-foot clearance.
