Project description

"This project would construct a bicycle and pedestrian bridge across the Rivanna River from East Market Street to the Pantops area. A shared use path would be constructed from the eastern bridge terminus up to the intersection of Peter Jefferson Parkway and State Farm Boulevard, where bicyclists and pedestrians can join the existing transportation network."
