Letter: On the Bike Path bridges


To the editor:

I am reading with disbelief about the proposed bicycle bridge replacements on the East Bay Bike Path in Warren/Barrington.

After years of waiting for a safe passage on RI’s tourism gem – the East Bay Bike Path – the result is smaller, less functional replacements. What? The long-awaited replacements will be narrower than the originals? In these days of increased outdoor activity, the replacements are planned to be narrower, with 2-foot wide sidewalks instead of the previous 4-foot wide?

Not nearly enough space for bicycling, walking, skating and fishing. Why take six years to do the job wrong?
