Bridge Links East/West McIntire Park

On Thursday, a new pedestrian and bicycle bridge was installed in Charlottesville that connects the east and west portions of McIntire Park.
According to a release from the city, this is the first time both sides of McIntire park have been connected since it was established in 1938 — the new bridge is part of a path currently being built that will connect the John Warner Parkway and the Downtown Mall with the YMCA, the trails at Meadow Creek, and Route 29 in the Hydraulic Road area.
The bridge was funded Virginia’s Department of Transportation with matching funds from a city of Charlottesville program — the overall project is scheduled for completion in late October.
