Squibb Park Bridge Design Modified for Accessibility

Modifications have been made to the design for the pedestrian bridge linking Squibb Park to Brooklyn Bridge Park, in order to make it comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act. These modifications, which include modification of guardrails, installation of wall-mounted handrails on the ramp down from Columbia Heights to Squibb Park, bituminous concrete landings on the ramp, raised and reset capstones, and pedestrian lighting, will be discussed by BBPC President Regina Myer at tomorrow evening’s Community Board 2 Parks and Recreation Committee meeting, which begins at 6:00 at Dining Rooms A&B (off of the cafeteria), Brooklyn Hospital, 121 DeKalb Avenue at St. Felix Street, in Fort Greene.

    The presentation is for “informational purposes only” because it was presented to the Design Commission this summer.

    What could possibiy be wrong with improving accessibility –whether you’re 60 or 6 so everyone can share and support the wonderful stuff happening on the waterfront.

    Based on the picture after the link it is a terribly ugly thing too

    now I doubt it will ever be built in any form. the excuse will be that they can’t make it fully complying. city agency cop-out 101.
