MAIN STREET BRIDGE--(Richmond, IN)--Richmond Mayor Dennis Andrews has called a public meeting to present the latest study on the present Main Street Bridge. The meeting will be held, Monday, October 25th at 5:15 pm in Council Chambers of the Municipal Building. Andrews says Cole and Associates will present its latest findings and conclusions. There are nine options to retain a bridge in the present location... either with traffic or just for pedestrians. Two options are to rehabilitate the present bridge at costs of over four million dollars. One is to build a two lane bridge for vehicular and pedestrian traffic for just over two million dollars. And there are six suggestiongs for a pedestrian bridge at costs ranging from some 700-thousand to 1.5 million dollars. And there's the original plan to tear the bridge down at no cost to the city when the new National Road Bridge is opened. Andrews says the meeting may "generate many questions and my hope is that we can discuss, if not answer, many questions during a public forum." Representatives from Cole Engineering will be on hand to discuss the report.
