I know that this will probably never happen in Birmingham, but a girl can wish, can't she?
Seeing this literally made me ache with longing and angst.
I am hopeful to see cities that care about pedestrians and are NOT just interested in the quickest way to get cars from point A to point B.
I AM encouraged for Birmingham's future, with the baby steps being taken. One example of such initiatives is Red Mountain Park, a recreational, public park space in excess of 1,100 acres. The park will include 18 miles of biking and hiking trails, fields and picnic areas. Still no timeline (that I know of) for when the park will be complete, but we will keep you up to date on the progress.
