- Greenville is a picture perfect erxample of a pedestrian bridge properly placed, providing safe quick crossing from one side of the river to the other with no other alternative over the water for walkers.
The costly-to-construct-&-maintain pedestrian bridge proposed by Gil Waters over the US41 modern roundabout at Main Street, however, duplicates the US41 walker crossing with a longer route beginning and ending far away from where a pedestrian would normally cross. . Greenville is an attractive utlility; the Water bridge is a decoration easily avoided to go from one side of the road to the other. The at-grade rooundabout alternative understands human nature, we are like water - we have to be forced to go up and over what we can do straightaway.
You will not find enthusiasm for pedestrian overpasses (aka bridges) like Waters prooses at http://www.pedestrians.org/bridges.htm. see how modern roundabouts work for pedestrians at www.SarasotaConnectivity.com and www.US41Momentum.com
