To me this is an idea that just won't work. People will use a bridge, only a fraction of them will use water taxis. What a colossal waste of money.

It sounds really unworkable. If I'm out on pleasure island, and it starts to rain, am I going to have to wait forever to get picked up by the dumbest of bridgeports dumb employees? Can I bring a cooler of beer onto the taxi? Beach chairs? Do I want to be without the convenience of my car? Do I trust my car won't be broken into at the end of seaview ave, a hell-hole?

The answers to all these questions are obvious to any adult besides liberal inner-city democrats.

Limited access for a high price.

Replacing the WOODEN bridge with a STEEL one would have ultimately cost less and been safer than boats.

Do you remember when they claimed it would take 20 million to fix or replace the bridge? What a bunch of hogwash- along with the claims of not being able to extinguish the fire. They wanted those people off the island, period, because they were possibly going to make a deal with a developer. See how they respect citizens?
