Pedestrian bridge to relieve commuter congestion
Senator Mark Warner and D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser announced the construction of a new bicycle-pedestrian bridge crossing the Potomac River between Arlington and D.C..
The $20 million project was funded by the Rebuilding American Infrastructure with Sustainability and Equity Program that was a part of Warner’s authored Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act.
This bridge is a component of the larger Long Bridge project which aims to relieve the bottleneck in the area.
The project also includes the construction of a new two track railroad bridge and expanding the existing railroad corridor.
The total project will cost $1.9 billion but is estimated to bring $6 billion in benefits to the region by 2040.
