The bridge that passes over Murrieta Creek, forming a corridor that merges into Main Street, from Pujol to City Hall reopened in May.
The community, thanks to a webcam installed to function day and night, monitored the 13-month construction.
Now residents and tourists have one more attraction, to walk another stretch of historic Temecula.
People can still visit the stop motion construction video that shows the effort and diligent work invested in its do over.
Before the bridge was open to pedestrian crossing and during the construction, residents in the Southern end of the city would have to actually drive into old town and compete for parking spaces.
The bridge displays beautiful decorations and a rustic looking iron structure that makes it very attractive, and pedestrians can walk safely without any risk of being in the way of motorists.
The only thing missing from the idyllic picture is water. The drought has kept the creek completely dry, with one exception being last February, during the storms.

I started working the Western End of Riverside County in 2013. A fascinating local history can only be paired with a burgeoning urban center showing the fastest growth in the entire US since 2012.
