Arkansas River Trail - Medical Mile Bridge

The City of Little Rock built a new BikePed bridge over the Union Pacific tracks between LaHarpe and the Arkansas River (Fig. 1).  In 2020, the Medical Mile ramp will connect the Arkansas River Trail Medical Mile to this bridge, creating a continuous off-street trail from the Clinton Presidential Bridge to the Dillard's Data Center.  Coupled with the West Terminus, these projects allow the Arkansas River Trail route to stay on the north side of Cantrell.  The project was completed in 2018.
