The Department of Planning, Preservation and Sustainability investigated concrete benefits to West Ashley and the City of Charleston resulting from the completion of the Legare Bridge Bicycle and Pedestrian Path.
Bicycle & Pedestrian Space
The 0.4 mile addition of bicycle and pedestrian space will connect West Ashley to downtown. In addition to providing a safe and convenient crossing, the path will connect citizens to jobs without the use of a car, increase neighborhood desirability, improve retail business, bring increased tourism to West Ashley, and make Charleston a more attractive city for the next generation of innovative business owners and employees.
