City Council Delays Decision On Belmont Bridge

City Council Delays Decision On Belmont Bridge

City councilors have decided to get more input before they pick a design for a new Belmont Bridge. They are facing two primary choices, and the more expensive option carries a $26 million price tag. Rolf Braun of East High Street won’t support replacing the current bridge with an underpass.
The current bridge was built more than 50 years ago, and city officials want a replacement. The city staff will schedule several meetings where residents and business owners can share their ideas.
