I sent an email to city council about the bridge's preservation potential, but sadly have not got a response. They had a meeting last night I was in hopes they would get my email and include it for consideration last night. Not sure if that happened.

Some enterprising group of bridge restoration people should show them how they can have the bridge restored safely and still have money for their midnight basketball programs.

I voiced my two-cents worth in the comments section of the recent article.

All this bridge needs is some new stringers and a metal grid deck. It can be done fairly cheap and will provide a nice historic pedestrian bridge. And the open deck won't allow the underneath to be used for a living space anymore.

I hope this isn't a duplicate, I didn't see this bridge listed. Its at risk for demolition and replacement. Newspaper article shown here.
