The Harahan Bridge bicycle and pedestiran project across the Mississippi in downtown Memphis will open a major cross-country bicycle corridor.
See how this route fits into the United States Bicycle Route System.
The project has received funding through a Tiger IV Stimulus grant. This pedestrian/bicycle connection will be a huge boon to downtown Memphis, but also to all folks interested in long distance cycling. The Mississippi River has long been a major obstacle as was evidenced by the recent cross-country trek by the Safe Routes expedition.
