Why is there a tunnel planned at Mary Avenue?

The grade of the land at Mary Avenue and Manchester Road is too high of a slope to have a crossing at street level. The addition of the tunnel allows for better ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) access and improves safety by allowing those using the trails and paths to cross under Manchester Road. It will also help the flow of traffic by not adding a street-level crossing. This design also provided access to additional grant funding for the project.
