The new Novelty Bridge on NE 124th opened to traffic Sunday afternoon. In the first car across were, from left, Duvall residents Beckie Ish, Diane Salz, Margie Coy, Lisa Allen, and Stephanie Goode, daughter of Duvall City Engineer Elizabeth Goode (inside the car). Coy, Salz and Ish were the last to cross the old bridge, at 3 a.m., the morning it closed March 15. The public is invited to the grand opening celebration on Oct. 25 at 10 a.m. The ceremony will feature King County Executive Ron Sims, King County Councilmember Louise Miller and Duvall Mayor Glen Kuntz. The bridge will be closed during the 30-minute ceremony.
