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.

    My colleagues John Ray and Jesse Bacon and I estimate, in the first analysis of its kind for the 2018 election season, that the president's waning popularity isn't limited to coastal cities and states. The erosion of his electoral coalition has spread to The Natural State, extending far beyond the college towns and urban centers that voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016. From El Dorado to Sherwood, Fayetteville to Hot Springs, the president's approval rating is waning.
