ROANOKE, Va. -

Construction on a Roanoke landmark is coming to an end.

Crews started working on the Memorial Bridge back in June.

The idea behind the project- to widen the sidewalks from 6-feet to 14 to accommodate walkers, joggers and bicyclists from the Greenway.

There have been several steps along the way.

"We had to demolish what was here before -do a little bit of repairs to the existing sidewalks and then extend it and really get down to the bridge deck to build the new sidewalk on a good stable foundation and then do the connections to the Greenway trail on both ends," explains Roanoke City Engineer Phil Schirmer.

The city engineer says the project should be done in the next two to three weeks.

It will also include repaving a portion of Memorial Avenue.

The $300,000 project was a joint effort between the city and Virginia Department of Transportation- both entities split the costs.
