Jersey City city man is causing a stir with his idea for a pedestrian bridge linking the Sixth Street Embankment to Lower Manhattan.

The Jersey Journal reports that Kevin Shane dreamed up the concept and joined with city-based architect Jeff Jordan to create renderings depicting what they call Liberty Bridge.

The span is envisioned as a pair of interwoven paths inside a box truss frame. The 5,000-foot long, 200-foot high bridge, which would also be open to cyclists, would reach into New York’s Battery Park.

Asked if he’s surprised by the attention his idea is getting, Shane said he’s “hoping for more.”

“I want to see this come to fruition and it needs to start somewhere,” he said.

Shane has created an online petition (LINK) calling for Jersey City Mayor Steve FulopNew Jersey Governor Chris Christie and New York Governor Andrew Cuomo to back the plan. It has over 500 supporters so far.
