Bridge to Nowhere. Waste of Tax Money

Great for Alcoa. I Love It!

At a cost of 1.8 Million dollars do you feel the pedestrian walkway is tax dollars spent wisely or is this nothing more than a "Bridge to Nowhere"? Is East Tennessee wasting money like Washington?

I couldn't believe they put it down there! It might have made a little sense if they had put it down by the shopping area. And they should have at least painted it orange. I agree it was a completely unnecessary waste of money.

The bridge leads people to a bad part of town. I do not think it is a good idea for the money. Joggers, in my opinion, are going to to be vulnerable to crime in this part of the green way due to its location.

I'll be honest with you. Every time I drive by this construction site (5 days a week) I get absolutely disgusted. What I originally thought was 1.5 million dollars of wasted money is actually 1.8 million dollars of wasted money. I can't believe we'd waste money on something like this that truly does lead to nowhere. I can't wait for November.
