Future of Cascade Bridge Looks Bleak

It’s been a question residents have asked the Burlington City Council for years now… When are you going to fix Cascade Bridge?

Current Mayor Jim Davidson, who is running again for council, said at Tuesday night’s Candidates Forum, that it’s not going to happen anytime soon…

“Seems like 6 years ago when I was sitting here they were asking, what are you going to do with Cascade Bridge? The answer is nothing right now, because we can’t. Hopefully after the five year period that we’ve set out, although I think we’ll have to modify that plan in order to help meet the budget constraints, we can deal with that situation.”

The bridge has been closed to traffic since September 2008.
