Yes, there will be a shared use path on the East End bridge.

It had been suggested to the Green Mouse that while a shared use path would be included on the East End Bridge, it would be the responsibility of local government to provide connecting infrastructure to the ground. According to ORBP East End Bridge on Facebook, this is untrue.

The shared-use path, including access points from IN and KY, will be built by the developer of the project, WVB East End Partners. Also, when the project is complete, WVB will remain local and maintain the bridge, including the shared-use path for 35 years.

It's another question as to what happens after 35 years; perhaps this number reflects the bridge's planned obsolescence in a time of hover jet cars.

Can we toll into the sky, via laser beam transponders?
