Closing Bell: Squibb Park Bridge Will Reopen in the Spring

The bouncing, zigzagging, and pricey pedestrian footbridge that links Brooklyn Heights with Brooklyn Bridge Park is set to reopen this spring, after closing in August for repairs, according to Brooklyn Paper. BBP expects to spend $700,000 repairing the two-year-old bridge, on top of the $4,100,000 it cost to construct. When the park closed the bridge last summer, BBP said the bridge timber could have warped and affected the cable tensions, causing the bridge to sway more than it should. But now park president Regina Myer is unsure if she wants to issue a report on the underlying causes, because she doesn’t “want to jeopardize the possibility of litigation,” according to the paper.  Squibb Park Bridge Repairs to Run $700K, Bridge Park Won’t Say Why It Closed [BK Paper] Squibb Park Bridge Coverage [Brownstoner]…
