Status Update

South Pantops Drive Connector Bridge is one of several projects evaluated in the Eco-Logical Pilot Project - Free Bridge Congestion Relief, a project conducted in the mid 2010's by the Thomas Jefferson Planning District Commission. [1]

Project Overview

"Alternative G, 'South Pantops Drive Connector', is designed to reduce congestion by providing an additional crossing south of Free Bridge. This alternative would provide a linkage between South Pantops Drive and High Street via a new alignment through the Pantops Shopping Center. The bridge would be a two‐lane urban‐style design that would include two vehicle travel lanes with bike and pedestrian infrastructure. Additionally, the alternative also includes a new traffic light at Willow Drive and two new roundabouts within the confines of the Pantops Shopping Center."
