Barb Paradise
I like it here at 125 LIVE because it's a lot of fun, there is so much to do! I feel safe here because everyone is wiping down their equipment and wearing masks. I appreciate working with my personal trainer via Zoom sessions. I simply wouldn't give it up!
Meet The Faces Behind 125 LIVE
Patty Gilmore
Patty recently joined 125 LIVE after retiring from her career in education as a literacy coach & reading specialist. Patty came to 125 LIVE because she wanted to stay active both mentally and physically. Patty was a member prior to joining the Membership Services team.

Patty states she enjoys the friendly atmosphere of 125 LIVE and finds it rewarding to help others.

Patty enjoys patio gardening, especially with milkweed plants to attract Monarchs. She also enjoys spending time with her grandchildren here and in Nashville. Some of Patty's other interests include biking, hiking, walking and spending time with friends.

Stop by Membership Services and help us welcome Patty!

Elton Hills Drive Bridge Closure
The Elton Hills Drive Bridge will be temporarily closed to vehicle traffic from July 25-26, 2020. Traffic will be detoured around the bridge via 3 Avenue NW to 13 Street NW to Broadway Avenue N.
 
Pedestrian and bicycle access across the bridge will remain open.
 
This closure is necessary to allow space for consultants to conduct soil borings in advance of the design of the replacement bridge. The Elton Hills Drive NW Bridge is scheduled to be reconstructed in 2021. City teammates worked with structural engineers and state bridge experts to determine the most cost-effective option for repairing the bridge after structural concerns arose on the Elton Hills Drive NW Bridge in 2018.
 
The expected cost to reconstruct the bridge is $3.7M, with $1.4M of the funding coming from Federal funds. The remainder of the funds will be sourced in part by Municipal State Aid. The City also plans to apply for State Bridge Bonds to help fund the project.
