The A.E. Wright Footbridge project was completed in December of 2010. It is 200-foot long, 12-foot wide footbridge that spans Las Virgenes Creek and connects A.E. Wright Middle School and Lost Hills Rd. The bridge provides a shorter distance for students and residents wishing to access the school or Las Virgenes Road from areas west of Las Virgenes Creek. It is a safe and convenient alternative to the primary pick-up/drop-off areas accessed from Las Virgenes Road. The bridge has been heavily used by both students and residents in the surrounding neighborhoods.  Every afternoon approximately 115 to 135 students cross the bridge to continue to the bus stop, their residence and, for some of them, to get picked up. The project was fully funded with federal support through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act and is now closed.
