Bike Bridge over Barton Creek Greenbelt green lighted
Posted 3/7/2013 4:57:00 PM

Almost five million dollars is going for a new bike and pedestrian bridge to parallel the northbound lanes of Mopac over the Barton Creek Greenbelt. The project in southwest Austin has been studied for close to a year. Austin's Bicycle Program Coordinator, Annick Beaudet, says it will be good for traffic. Beaudet says they offset regulatory hurdles by promoting the air quality improvements the bridge will bring as it allows more cyclists to commute from southwest Austin to downtown. The state is picking up the 4-point-9 million dollars when it's finished.
