Cooper River Bridge in Charleston – an example of a great pedestrian-bicycle lane on a large, new bridge project.

 If there was a separated pedestrian-bicycle lane over the Mobile River, would you consider riding or walking to the other side?

Sunday’s Mobile Press featured an article encouraging Alabama’s Department of Transportation (ALDOT) to include such a lane in the design of the new bridge. The article, “Let’s turn our new I-10 Bridge into a Destination”, has kicked off the public discussion of this project.  Al.com is also conducting an online “poll” asking readers to comment.  Vote in the poll HERE.

There is also an online petition, by the Mobile Bicycle Pedestrian Advisory Committee, asking for 10,000 supporters to lend their voice to the request for ped-bike facilities for the new I-10 Bridge.  CLICK HERE to see and consider signing the petition. 

Weigh-in, share your thoughts.  Share this message with your friends and family.  Help create some discussion and dialog about alternative transportation infrastructure in south Alabama.  Let’s connect more than just cars.  Let’s connect people and communities.
