Letter to Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission
RE Scudders Falls Bridge
The Design Advocacy Group strongly opposes the design of the new Scudders Falls Bridge as now presented because of its failure to accommodate pedestrians and bicyclists.
The design shows a lane for bikes and walkers on the southbound side of bridge, but it is considered an option, to be reviewed only “when costs are refined and cost reasonableness can be determined.”
In this era of heightened energy and environmental responsibility, and at this site in an area of a great natural beauty and recreational interest, provision for walkers and cyclists cannot be optional.
