Columbus officials to celebrate projects today

Columbus officials will be celebrating the start of one construction project today and the finish of another.

City Council and the mayor are scheduled to be at a groundbreaking ceremony for the new public safety training facility on Verhulst Drive at noon today and at the ribbon cutting for the reconstructed bridge at Lincoln Park at 4 p.m. today. That historic bridge was previously installed in Newbern and now spans Haw Creek, allowing the People Trail system to connect just south of 25th Street.
