Why Are There People On That Bridge?
NORFOLK - Some are wondering why people and not cars are on the new 25th Street bridge over Skyview Lake. City Public Works Director Dennis Smith told the City Council Monday night they had to maintain full access to the trail in order to receive Department of Roads and Federal Highway Administration park improvement funding. Meanwhile, Smith says the contractor working on the pedestrian bridge struck a ten-to-12 inch water line Monday afternoon while driving in support pilings. That forced some people in the immediate area to have no water for a time while others in the area had low water pressure.
