To avoid a “dark and dreary” atmosphere such as that pedestrians encounter beneath the existing bridge, he noted, the task force spent a lot of time working on its design for the underside of the new bridge, where the state bike path and other riverfront development are likely to be situated.
Does anyone know if there are tangible plans for a bike path along here? If so, are there any bicycle advocacy groups involved with the project and ensuring that the bridge does indeed leave open the possibility of a future bike path.
While I’m sure it will be a beautiful bridge, I can’t help but wonder how much of the $100 million price tag will go towards asthetic purposes. If instead of spending it on asthetic purposes, couldn’t it go towards actually funding said bike path?
