I'd be OK with the 8th Street option. It would spur development/revitalization up and down the Westover Riverfront. It could also help Granville tax base as well since it's part of the UTC. It can connect the Western part of the County (which frankly should be a distribution/industrial hub) to Morgantown through those 3 cities.

The next best option would have been where the Practice Facility/Tennis Courts are now. Since the PF was built 5 years ago its no use now short of cutting through the Arboretum which is a non-starter.

We'll see how it all works out.

If it makes the most sense to build it over and through the arboretum, then so be it. I'm confident thorough research and planning will be utilized to make sure the impact is as minimal as possible. I hope that given this opportunity, the bridge design will be something that can be a point of pride for the area. I'm no engineer, but a large suspension bridge would look nice in my opinion.
That's what I was thinking! Why can't there be a happy middle ground? Lets go with something that really fits beautifully into nature and is pleasing to the eye instead of your typical concrete mass. Maybe something like this:

That would be great, I'd happily pay a levy (to fund the bridge) if they made the bridge a focal point and not some piece of garbage.

There is an article in today's DP about new stores and restaurants coming to UTC.

The new store at the end of the older section is confirmed as Lane Bryant.

Open, or opening soon are the ones we already know about-Ulta, five Below, Sleep Number, GNC, and AC Moore.

Listed as under construction are Buffalo Wild Wings Freedom Ford KIA, Fusion Steakhouse and Kirkland's.

Courtyard Marriott is scheduled to open by the end of the month.

Also announced are Pizza Al's and FIREHOUSE SUBS.

As far as Morgantown goes, Pizza Al's is the only thing local we've tried, didnt like it...so we usually make our own at home....IF we ever decide to get delivery, of the big 3 chains we would go with Papa John's, but I think its been at least 4 years since we've gone that route.....Digiorno frozen pizzas just for quick weekday foods, or the take n bake walmart pizzas (not very good, butyou get ALOT of meat and its a HUGE pizza for $10).......

I would recommend trying Mountain State Brewing Company on the wharf. They have great wood fired pizza.
