MTA releases preliminary plan for a shared use path on the VNB

vnb03

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) recently released a preliminary report on its Verrazano-Narrows Bridge Master Plan — including conceptual views of possible shared-use paths on the bridge.

The current proposals are much more ambitious than previous bridge path designs, and the costs reflect that – estimated to be between $300 and $400 million. The encouraging part is that the MTA has seemingly put real effort and resources into finally building a walking and bicycling connection between Staten Island and Brooklyn.
