Don't Forget That Other Hike-n-Bike Bridge Linking Riverfront and the Cedars
Between the bridge, which goes over the Union Pacific tracks, and the "Plaza and Spiral Ramp Park," construction's guesstimated to run between $9.5 and $11.5 million. Tomorrow's briefing doesn't say who's covering the cost, but the city is -- at least a hunk of it. Already has. A brief '09 briefing on the subject, which dates back to when JPI had dibs on those 60 acres, had the city using $1.6 million in '06 bond funds on the project, including Halff's renderings. According to an even earlier look-see dating back to '07, the connector was initially guesstimated to cost just $2 million. But it's grown since then. Has it ever.
The briefing's light on stats, but heavy on renderings. And you know how I love a good rendering. So much so, two more follow.
