Airport Pkwy. Bridge Tower Coming Down

- April 13th, 2012

An update to the story we’ve been following on the $5-million pedestrian bridge over the Airport Pkwy. Construction had to stop and an assessment done because there was clearly something wrong with the cement.

The contractor, Bray Construction, was to have a report in the city’s hands today assessing the work. Apparently the city never received the report, but officials have learned the tower must be demolished and the whole project started over again.

The city has said in the past it’s insulated from added costs because of the muck-up. Looks like residents in this area will have to wait even longer for a safe passage to rapid transit.
