Read The Hoan Bridge & Harbor Redevelopment Study

September 5, 2009

Courtesy of Sean Ryan at The Daily Reporter here’s the design sketchbook from HNTB on the redevelopment of the Hoan Bridge and the surrounding area.

Notice there’s no mention of removing the downtown/south side connection. In fact, there’s a clear focus on strengthening the bond between the two communities.

What do you think of the study? Is it as threatening as it’s been made out to be by some politicians and supporters of the Hoan?

    Jesus. Could this “scribd” thing be any more of a pain in the butt to use?

    Seriously though, I absolutely love this plan. I think the fears that it’ll slow down access to the south side is pretty exaggerated. We’re talking about a few minutes tops. The catch, of course, is can we really get enough development in the new, cleared areas to make enough of a critical mass to bring the area to life.

    I’d say the answer is yes, but it’ll take 20 or 30 years. Frankly, I’m still in favor of it, but some people will probably moan about it taking that long. I just think that’s realistic.
