Bike Path Viewed from Forbes Avenue

Looking from this vantage point on Forbes Avenue, just east of the Birmingham Bridge, one can understand the difficulty of reaching the Eliza Furnace Trail from South Oakland. Without the Brady Street path, a cyclist would need to cross six lanes of Interstate 376 in order to reach the Eliza Furnace Trail, highlighted here inĀ  YELLOW .

Since crossing the highway cannot be done safely, we propose a quarter mile loop under the highway starting here on Forbes Avenue, making a left on Brady Street, and making another left on Second Avenue to connect with the Eliza Furnace Trail.

Across from the highlighted portion of the Trail, one can also see the highway turnout on the north side of Interstate 376 that indicates the position of the Rock Alley tunnel.
