    A ribbon cutting ceremony on Thursday afternoon will mark the opening of the Mockingbird Pedestrian Bridge to the public.

    The bridge has been a project in the works for about a decade.

    It will start from the back of the Highland Dallas Hotel, go over Mockingbird Lane and end at the Mockingbird DART Station.

    “It can function both as a recreational amenity, but also a transportation amenity. Imagine being able to jump on this and go to work in downtown Dallas. You will be able to do that once this is built," Angela Hunt, a former Dallas city council member, told NBC DFW in July.
