KEZI ran an article and video today with information regarding the progress of the Delta Ponds Bridge Project; a bicycle and pedestrian bridge currently under construction with the intent to connect Goodpasture Island Road with Robin Hood Avenue.
According to the article the six million dollar project is being funded by highway and federal stimulus money which cannot be spent on other types of projects. Refreshingly, the new bridge will not be bogged down by the same type of signage that ruined the I-5 pedestrian and bicycle bridge for some. Quoted from KEZI.com:
The contractor for this project is the same one who worked on the I-5 bike bridge. So will this new bridge be subjected to the same type of signage that hangs above the interstate?
“No, there won’t be any signage on this bridge, the bike bridge and for a big reason is because it is a beautiful area, we want a beautiful bridge to match the area,” said Jones.
