Das Bridge UPDATE

Posted By on Tue, Apr 29, 2008 at 3:11 PM

Bruce Lindsey, CEO of the Clinton Foundation, has sent to city directors a memo about the status of plans to convert the abandoned railroad bridge by the Clinton Library into a link on the 14-mile riverfront trail.

Costs of the library delayed the project, he says, but the foundation remains committed to completion, though the estimated cost has doubled from $5 million to $10 million. Lindsey said the foundation had spent $500,000 working on the project.

His full memo is here and I have a request in for a drawing of the project.

Gene Pfeifer, a businessman and bicyclist who's been pushing for fulfillment of the bridge commitment and recently started a website dedicated to that end, also promises a response to the Lindsey memo shortly. In the main, he notes that it lacks a timetable.

UPDATE: As promised, here's Pfeifer's pro/con take on the foundation response.
