The first section of the M-Path bicycle and pedestrian bridge over the entrance ramp to SR 878/Snapper Creek Expressway went up earlier tonight. The bridge is the most significant piece of a $4.5 million dollar M-Path extension project which is scheduled to be completed later this year. This is long overdue and welcomed by pedestrians and cyclists alike who have struggled for years to get from one side of the "goat path" to the other. Motorists are to expect some traffic delays on US1 near the ramp until 5am Monday and are advised to enter the Snapper Creek Expressway via SW 80th street.
The rendering below illustrates what the bridge will look like once complete.
