The project includes construction of a new bicycle and pedestrian bridge and circulation and accessibility improvements and will improve access for residents on both sides of Fryer Creek and connectivity to the citywide bicycle and pedestrian system, provide a safer route to local schools, places of employment, residential areas, parks and other destinations.

The bridge will be constructed over Fryer Creek to connect Newcomb Street on the east and the existing multi-use paths and Manor Drive on the west.  A new 8-foot wide, 60-foot long paved bicycle and pedestrian path will extend from the eastern bridge approach to the existing residential driveway on the north side of Newcomb Street.  A new sidewalk and associated curb and gutter will be constructed along Newcomb Street. This project will be located within public right-of way and construction is expected to start in 2021 and be completed in the summer of 2022.
