ATLANTA (AP) -- The National Park Service is taking a first step toward proposing a pedestrian bridge over the Chattahoochee River.
The footbridge would connect the park holdings in east Cobb County to a city park in Sandy Springs. The bridge would allow access for bicyclists or walkers south of the Morgan Falls Dam.
The first step is an environmental assessment and would include several public meetings to determine whether the bridge has public support.
A nonprofit group that advocates for green space, the Sandy Springs Conservancy, started soliciting qualifications on Dec. 5 for companies that could conduct the environmental assessment.
