RIT should build a bike bridge across the river and be a bike bridge joining the Genesee Valley Greenway and the Lehigh Valley North Trail.

As previously noted, Mitch Rosen and I have come to realize that RIT could connect the Genessee Valley Greenway (just south of Jefferson Rd) and the Lehigh Valley North Trail (LVNT) up to UR and the City.
This might be a strategic linkage.
  • with regard to RIT, see this post (an on campus Greenway would connect RIT’s two new extremities Global Village and Park Point)
  • with regard to the RochesterGreenway (=Lehigh Valley North Trail here) , this would join it to the GVGreenway.
  • with regard to the potential NYPA Greenways (the 230 mile superset to Williamsport), this would be a big advance
  • with regard to the Genessee Valley Greenway, our impression is that it peters out just to the north of this point.  This would ncrease the Genessee Valley Greenway’s utility and value.
Details:
Some googling lead me to believe there is a connecting trail.
So this afternoon, I went cross country skiing to look for the connecting trail.  
At around the right place (A), I did find an embankment going West-East across the trail.
There was a stone bridge over the creek on the West side of the trail, but fallen trees  (under the snow, at least) no obvious trail to the East.
When I circled back and drove back to Scottsville Rd just south of Greyson Rd, I found what might be the West end of that same cross-trail:
a break in a wooden fence, a marked telephone pole “RGE 111, 228” and a sign pointing to Clearview Farms apartment.  (B)
And when I hiked West from the Road, there was a clear view to (what I believe was) the GV Trail.
