Legendary country star Johnny Cash has been honoured with his own bridge in Folsom, California.

The late singer named his landmark 1968 album, At Folsom Prison, after the place and now local officials have celebrated the city's links to Cash with a new $3.8 million (£2.38 million) pedestrian and bicycle overpass in his name.

The first section of the 2.5 mile (four kilometre) Johnny Cash Trail and Overpass was unveiled on 4 October (14).

However, city leaders are now seeking new investors to help ensure the completion of the project, which reportedly requires a further $3 million (£1.88 million) in funding.

The remaining plans for the trail include a park and a 40-foot (12-metre) tall statue of the icon.

Cash died in 2003, aged 71.
