Livingston Ave Bridge talk

livingston avenue bridge mediumThe Livingston Avenue Bridge Coalition -- a group working to make sure pedestrian and cycling access is included in the replacement for the Livingston Ave Bridge that spans the Hudson between Albany and Rensselaer -- has a meeting at the Albany Public Library tonight (Monday) to "discuss opportunities presented" by the bridge replacement and "find out how your voice can be heard." The event is at 7 pm at the APL Main Library. Earlier: Soapbox: A walkable Livingston Avenue Bridge


Thank you very much for plugging this.

I hope that folks understand that they DO have a say in how the waterfront will be redeveloped, and it's up to all of us to find that voice and give it the volume it deserves.We're going to pay for this bridge, one way or another. We should get what we want and what we need. After all, the Capital Region has had it on the radar for more than a decade.

And thank you, Martin, for championing a walkable bridge. I visited the Walkway Over the Hudson this summer, and it was magnificent beyond my expectations. I wondered how we could get something like that to celebrate the Hudson in the Capital Region, when I remembered your project (which I learned about on AOA). The people of the mid-Hudson Valley have a much closer relationship to the Hudson River, and this project would be one more opportunity for that connection in the Capital Region. I was unable to attend tonight's meeting, so please let supporters know what we can do to keep it moving forward. Keep up the good work!

We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up.
