Dover, NH, April 14, 2010 - "It would be a crying shame to see the pedestrian foot bridge that crosses the Cocheco River from Washington Street destroyed for lack of the money to move it," Says the Foster's.Com editorial. "That said, Dover taxpayers just don't have the greenbacks to do the job."
Moving the bridge could cost as much as one-quarter of a million dollars. "After looking at the cost and possible locations, three options appear to be on the table - sell the bridge, give it away or destroy it."
"One more option should be discussed," resumes the editorial, "that of giving a community-based fundraising effort time to materialize."
