Chattanooga choo-choo?

The revived downtown Chattanooga has gotten easier for those with mobility impairments to get around. The city is celebrating a many multi million dollar redevelopment of its riverfront this spring. Says β€œThe redevelopment also includes a sculpture garden with a walkway linking it to an expanded Hunter Museum of American Art on an 80-foot high bluff over the river. An incline transporter β€” which is a wheelchair-accessible cable car on a track β€” also runs along the walkway's steep path.” Sounds like a creative solution to a difficult accessibility challenge.
