According to Brooklyn Paper, the Squibb Bridge saga continues…this time to the tune of a few more million.
The paper reported on Friday that the board of Brooklyn Bridge Park voted to authorize $3.12 million to repair the bridge, which has been out of commission for exactly two years and two months.
The article details the tangled history of the Bridge, including this update that would verge on the absurd if it weren’t so maddening:
And to add injury to insult, developer Toll Brothers — which is building the luxury Pierhouse condominium complex on either side of the springy pathway — hit the bridge with a truck in May and damaged some of its cables, although it is coughing up an additional $790,000 to cover those costs, according to Patricia Kirshner, the park’s vice president of capital planning and construction.
