RALEIGH, N.C. — It's brand new, but Raleigh's pedestrian bridge is already attracting national attention.
The bridge, which crosses I-440 near Wade Avenue, was controversial because of its $3.8 million price.
But the U.S. Department of Transportation thinks the project is well worth it.
It presented the state with the 2005 Environmental Excellence Award in the "non-motorized transportation category."
The bridge beat out 238 other projects for the award.
