Stamford reps reject no-bid bridge repair pact

The importance of the bridge was evident from the attendance of others at the six-hour meeting — Mayor David Martin and members of his cabinet; neighborhood activists; a city attorney; the traffic chief, city engineer and planner; preservationists; and members of the Mill River Collaborative and Downtown Special Services District. At issue is whether the 125-foot bridge should be shored up to accommodate cars, as it once did, or remain pedestrian-only, as it has been since 2002. The collaborative obtained a $2 million grant it wants to give the city to rehabilitate the bridge for walkers only.
