CLARIFICATION RE: NEWPORT BICYCLE/ PEDESTRIAN PATH
Please note the following regarding the Newport bicycle/ pedestrian path
Funding for the First Mile Shared Use Path in Newport remains intact. The original TIP project ID 9003 has been retired, but the full $7.2 million for this project has been combined with the Pell Bridge Ramp Realignment project IDs 9201 and 1364 and remains specifically designated for the Shared Use Path.
Bike Newport has asked the Department of Transportation to clearly articulate the budget, schedule and limits of the Shared Use Path within the Pell Bridge project and will continue to work with DOT and the City of Newport to see the First Mile Shared Use Path completed with the most optimal placement, design and use possible.
