"TBE and T.Y. Lin are the two firms suggested by Joel and staff. TBE’s bridge costs about $8.4 million and T.Y. Lin’s costs $7.5 million. TBE’s design was residents’ second choice and T.Y Lin’s was residents’ third favorite. T.Y. Lin’s design includes steel arches and has higher clearance under the bridge than TBE’s design."
The above is copied from the article.
Are all of the bridges higher off the water than out current bridge? If so, that would mean a longer or steeper ramp up and down the bridge will be needed. How much of the newly completed road work and bridge park will be demolished for the bridge options? Is that part of the cost difference? Has that even been accounted for? One would have to determine the loss of recently completed improvements to get a true cost since the life of those improvements has not yet expired.
How much will it cost just to repair the existing bridge?
I just read an article from March 2005 when Joel recommended a drawbridge. Is the goal to have a bridge that is safe or, to raise the span for larger boats to get under the bridge?
