Future Sakonnet River Bridge Bike Path

RIDOT is incorporating a shared-use bike path on the north side of the new Sakonnet River Bridge. The path will be open at the conclusion of the bridge project in late 2013. The path will offer stunning views of the Sakonnet River while providing a vital link for pedestrians and cyclists to get from Tiverton to Portsmouth. The path will include approach segmeents that connect to local streets.
