Last Day for High Bridge Survey

3:08 PM EDT on September 7, 2007

In addition to the subway, the Metro-North, and the ferry, baseball spectators should have another non-auto option to get to the new Yankee Stadium: a restored car-free High Bridge.

The High Bridge merits attention today not only due to the current parking controversy, but also because it's the last day of the Parks Department's online survey.

As noted previously, two items at issue are bike access and park hours. The original plan called for the restored bridge to be open only on weekends, and only during the day, severely limiting its viability as a transportation link. Parks representatives have said the city will make use of existing park trails and bike routes for cycling access, but specifics remain unclear.

The Parks folks have been very receptive to public input, and want to hear from as many people as possible. Let's hear it, car-free Yankee fans!
