About $40 million is to be spent on the bridge and development.

The bridge will help with development of the 14-acre complex at 1415 Grandin Road, across from a parking lot for the scenic trail along the river.

The project is to include 130 residences and 15,000 square feet of commercial development.

There will also be a match of more than $2.4 million on the bridge project, according to the announcement.

The project calls for a 48-foot-wide, two-lane structure with shoulders and an 11-foot-wide dedicated pedestrian/bike way with barrier separation. The project is to include improved horizontal alignment and a new vertical profile to moderate steep vertical grades on the King Avenue approach.

Also, there is to be a new tunnel crossing of the river under Grandin Road and a relocated parking area for the trail.
