Notable progress has been made this summer on the City’s Fryer Creek Pedestrian & Bicycle Bridge Project. The project includes the construction of a new bicycle and pedestrian bridge and circulation and accessibility improvements – improving access for residents on both sides of Fryer Creek, and connectivity to the citywide bicycle and pedestrian system.
At the end of July, the new bridge was installed by crane over Fryer Creek, connecting 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. The bridge is not yet open for public use, but the project is on track to be completed this Fall.
