Set Bridge Cost Record Straight 

Response to the Editor's note in Good Bridge, Bad Bridge.

We are writing this to set the record straight in reply to the Source Editor's note re: "Good Bridge, Bad Bridge" (Opinion 3/1).

The cost estimate for the Option B bridge over the Deschutes near First Street Rapids was quoted by the Source's editor as being between $430,00 and $575,000. Actually the figure is substantially more. Bend Parks and Recreation Department reports that the estimated cost range to plan, design and build the bridge and path connections to Revere and to First Street is $651,789 to $851,789.

This figure does not include any Davis Park development or parking improvements to either side.

  • DO NOT SPIT ON MY CAR

    We recently visited Bend for the Film Festival and very much enjoyed ourselves, with one small exception. We parked our Ford in the public parking structure, only to find when we returned on Friday night that it had been spat upon, apparently in retribution for our Obama 2012 bumper sticker. I understand that whoever did this was passionate about politics, something I have always shared.

  • THE SOURCE ROCKS, BUT 'ONE DAY AT A TIME' DOESN'T

    After living in Bend for a year and a half, I recently stopped through on business. I love the town, the people, and all the outdoor beauty the area offers. One of my favorite things about Bend is without question, The Source. From the first time I read it, I knew it would be a cover-to-cover great time for me to enjoy all the stories, community news, the updates on all the music and arts, presentations, and great things goings on around town.
