Public meeting number two (the first was held on October 29) following completion of initial design work will take place on Thursday, January 23 at 6:00 p.m., at River Village East, 2919 Randolph St. NE, community room. The presentation materials from the first meeting have been posted to the project web site.
Construction of the new bridge is expected to begin in autumn 2014. (Note: As of October 16, the walkway on the south side of the bridge has been closed, following an inspection that revealed one of the brackets holding the cantilevered walkway no longer intact.) A page on the Bridgehunter’s Chronicles site features the bridge, and the site overalll is a feast of information and images on bridges.
