The old ones have been damaged several times from floodwaters. How much will these cost to repair when damaged? The bases will still be very vulnerable when the bridges are in the air. I don’t think the Oak Grove one is even necessary with bridges within a few blocks either direction. Not for that price. And I use it often.

I agree that the Oak Grove park is not in a huge need for this, they have 3 bridges in the area that people can use year round. The South side should get 2 new bridges. They really need a bridge someplace South of Interstate 94, maybe even on that is permenant for pedestrians. During flooding, the only option in down on 52nd Ave S or going up to Main Avenue!
This is a horrible design.Now we’ll have even larger structures then we already do that will catch even more logs and debri every spring and summer.Increasing the potential for more costly damage.Can’t we just put simple floating bridges like at midtown dam?

so, lets see….
$4,000 a year or $1.1M…..gosh, what should we do?
yes, lets spend 275 years of labor (1.1M/4000) on two new fancy bridges!!!
how much does it cost when a fancy tower gets taken out?
