Pedestrian bridge over intersection of Granite and S. Commercial Street to ease congestion, especially during events at ballpark.

The west bank of the Merrimack River from Granite St southward has lost access with the coming of the Everett Turnpike/Manchester By-pass/ I -293. This river is one of New Hampshire's most valuable water assets in for recreation. Developing access increases the value of the asset to Manchester, Bedford and the State of NH.

A pedestrian & bicycle elevated path above the water along the west side of the river would be great. It could start at Bass Island Park (on the Piscataquog), head east to the Merrimack and then head north until it reaches Arms Park (or even go as far as the islands). A few connections to various locations would give many people access to many things (Stark Landing, the north side of Granite Street, the old bridge supports near Waumbec St & Arms Park, Foundry St. on the west side, etc).

Very cool but let's connect the railtrail from the Heritage Trail in Bedford. I do it now but you take your life in your own hands when you cross Granite Street if that was resolved some way it would be perfect.

Although a lower income area, I feel this is not a reason for the neighborhood to be neglected. The roads in this area are crumbling, the parking for the bike oath has been commandeered for construction staging area, and the sidewalks are over in with trash and weeds. A better maintained neighborhood would make the neighborhood feel safer and look nicer to visitors to our city. Low income or not.

This area of the city has a lot of lower rent housing. I would hate to see these people displaced.
