Tyler Potterfield Memorial Bridge (Browns Iseland Dam Walk)

Recommended Posts

I was on a bike ride the other day attempting to make the Buttermilk East > Flood Wall connection and was happy to see the path was diverted because work on the Browns Island Dam Walk has begun.  You can see the work from the north side of the river quite clearly I now notice.  I'll take some pictures when the rain lets up.  I'm excited about this project.

I went for a walk along the flood wall today and wanted to see the progress. I also noticed they had cleared land next to the overlook. It was so overgrown and blocked off from the normal route, that I didn't make it up there.

Went on Sunday with some family. I thought it was great, especially for southsiders. It gives them a pedestrian only way to get to Brown's Island and downtown in general.

I walked it for the first time this past week.  Really awesome project and no doubt it will be crowded come this spring.

I finally got the chance to walk across the T.Pot bridge yesterday.  What a great place to see the city and to be amongst people outside...quite a few people at that (a pleasant surprise).  The views of the skyline were great and it was fun to be so close to the rapids below.  The deck was a bit bright in the sun (probably my only complaint), but overall a super addition to the James River Park System!  While we were there, my boys and I also checked out the Civil War museum (also a great place to visit)!  It was good to be downtown again. I try to go at every chance. Anyway, just wanted to write my review.

      I thought we could use a thread just for Park developments, the riverfront, and green spaces (ie, the sugar pad, kanawha plaza, Tpot bridge, etc..). Didn't know if we already have one, if so I'll figure out how to delete this and bring up the old one (just let me know). 
      To start here's the latest news on the sugar pad area:

      Here's a link to the just-released iQuilt Plan in the form of a "Pocket Guide": http://iq2.squarespa...0Jan%202012.pdf

      The full 120-page Overview is supposed to be online on January 24.

      There has been a lot of news coverage of the iQuilt recently:
      http://theiquiltplan.org/news/

      The Plan is also relevant to other Urban Planet discussions on downtown Hartford, including proposed renovations of the XL Center, and the State of Connecticut possibly relocating many of its office into downtown commercial space, and freeing up its holdings, especially around Bushnell Park, for housing.
