After yesterday’s Tobacco Warehouse meeting, your correspondent asked BBPC president Regina Myer to confirm what was written in DumboNYC: that the pedestrian bridge to connect the Squibb Playground with Pier 1 of Brooklyn Bridge Park has been funded. She replied that it has. I asked if she knew when construction would begin. She said this coming spring or summer, depending on how soon a construction contract can be finalized.
11.17 update: The Brooklyn Bridge Park Corporation’s Board of Directors today approved awarding the design and engineering contract for the bridge to HNTB Engineering & Architecture. Ms. Myer, who briefed the Board on the proposal, said she hoped construction could begin next summer, but could not give a projected construction schedule now. She will keep the Board advised of progress.
