The Bridge over Interstate 85 LINC is proposed as the only trail connection over the interstate and is a critical connection between the east and west sides of Newnan. All alternative options were assessed (creeks, roads, rail) and deemed unfeasible or undesireable as they did not match the goals of the master plan of providing an inviting trail connection.
With high daily traffic counts along I-85, the LINC is proposed as an iconic bridge attracting all travelers of the corridor to want to stop and experience the LINC Trail System. It is recommended within the implementation strategy to immediately begin design and permitting of the bridge as it will take time to be approved and built.
Preliminary discussions have begun with both the Cancer Treatment Centers of America (west side property owner) and the Novare Group (east side property owner).
