Forest City Proves Bridges Can Be Placed Anywhere for Any Reason

Two weeks ago, Forest City set down a pedestrian bridge near Prairie Meadow Dr. and 51st Ave. The bridge, in sync with other bridges Forest City has placed, seems to serve no purpose at all. “What the hell is a bridge doing there?” asked Stapleton resident Chris Royal. “There is nothing there. What are they trying to connect? I have to believe that is pretty expensive and a big waste of money.” Laura Grossman also sees the bridge as a waste of resources. “They have been working on the 26th Ave. Park forever,” said Grossman. “Why put any resources into putting down a bridge that doesn’t do anyone any good? How about a pedestrian bridge from the Eastbridge neighborhood to the town center instead of those dangerous crossings?” For its part, Forest City seems to be impressed with its work. “What we did is really kind of amazing,” said Forest City spokesperson Janelle Ayers. “We took a bridge and placed it basically in the middle of nowhere, for no apparent reason. Now, we have to figure out how we need to design around the bridge. A lot of people do it the other way. Create the surrounding environment and then decide if and how to put a bridge in.” Ayers didn’t offer any information on why the bridge was being placed there. “Maybe just because we can,” said Ayers smugly. “Look, this is a big thing, building a bridge. This is just another addition to the many wonderful bridges in Stapleton.” Forest City says the bridge will be open to the public by late April, but they are not sure why anyone would need to ever walk on it.]]>
