*A Ciclovia de Dallas FYI: The Houston St Viaduct is NOT the old bridge parallel with the new Calatrava. It’s the old bridge connecting Zang Blvd on the Oak Cliff Side and Houston St. on the Downtown side. There is another bridge directly parallel to it called the Jefferson Viaduct

*WEATHER UPDATE:  SKYS ARE LOOKING GOOD FOR THE EVENT!  WE WILL HAVE THE EVENT EVEN IF THERE ARE LIGHT SHOWERS.  PLEASE FOLLOW US ON FACEBOOK FOR ANY FUTURE WEATHER UPDATES
