Following the ribbon cutting, Audre King from the West Luray Recreation Center, will be the first to drive across the new Main Street Bridge. Barb Stewart, who won the Bridge Raffle, graciously gifted her winning ticket to Audre. Area children will accompany Audre as he makes the drive over the bridge in a truck donated for the event by Marlow Ford.
