The Maxine Herring Parker Bridge opened Tuesday in Collegeville.

The bridge, on Fred L. Shuttlesworth Drive, provides an overpass for motorists and pedestrians to cross over railroad tracks that have posed safety problems for area residents.

“Kids will be able to travel safely to (nearby Hudson K-8 School) and cars can travel safely over the (bridge),” said Birmingham City Councilman William Parker, who represents the district. “I’m excited about progress, I’m excited for the residents and the improvement in the quality of life.”Community residents were frustrated for years with trains that blocked access to the neighborhood and at times forced children to climb over the trains to get to school on time.
