City of Billings Votes Against Downtown Pedestrian Bridge

Our civic leaders had a rare moment of fiscal responsibility yesterday.  The council voted against using tax payers dollars to fund a pedestrian bridge that would run over the train track on 25th Avenue, connecting Montana Avenue and Minnesota Avenue.

The Flakes are just as shocked as you are.  Of course, our Mayor voted for it.  He’s never seen a project he didn’t like.  But the majority of the city brass felt that it just wasn’t the right time to build the bridge to nowhere.

Mark and Paul have said it before and we’ll say it again.  State Transportation Funds should go toward building and improving our highways and roads, not constructing pedestrian bridges or bike trails.  Sounds like, this time, the council listened to the people for a change.
