The parkway overpass was constructed, and the Miller Hill roadway was realigned to separate itself from the busy parkway. The trail was also relocated, with emphasis placed on preserving and reestablishing natural areas. The finished project allows Miller Hill Road traffic and Appalachian Trail users to safely pass under the parkway while retaining rustic appearance.
