If you’ve been driving by the Cocoplum Circle anytime recently, you’ve probably been stuck in traffic and wondering what’s going on! Well, something pretty exciting is about to happen. For the past few years, a plan has been in the works to add a pedestrian and bicycle bridge next to the driving bridge going from the Cocoplum Circle to LeJeune Rd. This will be a continuation of the Commodore Trail that runs from the Cocoplum Circle all the way through the Grove. As you drive by Ingraham Park right now, the bridge is already there and it looks like it’s about ready to be installed. What a nice way to make our streets safer for runners, walkers and bikers. As a runner, I’m so excited to have this extra space and not feel like I’m going to be pushed into traffic while crossing the bridge!
