Envisioned as a connector between existing communities and the bike and pedestrian trails of GreenCity, the proposed mass-timber replacement bridge at Scott Road will enhance the safety of recreational users while expanding access to the proposed regional Fall Line Trail in Central Virginia. It will also set a new standard for environmentally responsible infrastructure.
Scott Road crosses Interstate 95 today via a narrow, traditional steel and concrete constructed bridge. The circa-1962 bridge no longer meets height requirements for modern traffic, averaging several vehicle strikes per year. Future Cities has proposed a non-traditional building materials to erect a sustainable pedestrian-only pathway across the interstate.
