Many of you will remember the work being done on the Aurora Bridge last year. Lead-based paint was removed from the bridge deck with extensive containment procedures around the bridge. It was of some level of concern for many residents including the southernmost residents of Wallyhood. For the few regular bike and pedestrian commuters over the bridge, it was a hassle.
I am one of those of bicycle commuters over the bridge, and I was surprised to hear it was only Phase I. Phase II is coming in 2018.
The neighbors and businesses in the immediate area were invited to an open house on June 13th that slipped past the editors’ collective attention, but the website does provide a contact for questions or comments. The project goes out to competitive bid in October 2017 with construction planned to begin in early 2018.
