June 3, 2014 - Construction is underway for a new path that will make crossing the Bayfront Parkway much safer.

Crews have started work on a million dollar path designed to get people from the neighborhoods in the Bluffs to Liberty Park safely.

A new traffic light will be put in for this new path.

Erie Port Authority officials say this project has been in the works for quite some time, and that it's very necessary in keeping pedestrians safe all summer long.

The project is funded by PennDOT and officials said it is set to be completed by late summer.
