The developers of May Town Center have proposed a new location for a bridge over the Cumberland River to ease opposition against the development.
Now, if the proposed $4-billion development wins approval, a bridge would pass over the river into the Cockrill Bend area and connect Bells Bend with Centennial Boulevard.
Previously, the bridge would have connected the development with Interstate 40, cutting across state-owned land next to the Charlotte Park neighborhood.
Tony Giarratana, a consultant for the May family on the development, said the decision was made about three weeks ago after meeting with the neighbors opposed to the bridge, the councilman and the state representative.
