Do we really need a skipping stone bridge? | Letter to the editor

So, we need a skipping stone bridge for the Cross Kirkland Trail near Totem Lake Mall? The council has repeatedly told us they support and intend to place trains on the trail.

One might assume the train would eventually continue on up to Woodinville? The bridge is expected to cost $16 million.

Why not have a look at the UNDERPASS Kenmore made at 68th under the road for the Burke-Gilman bike trail. About the same length for $5.9 million—and no monster bridge perched over the area.

And if they end up pushing the train down our throats, a more likely way for the train to travel. Maybe some trouble with drainage, but a solution to consider. And leftover money for dog walking trails or waterfront gondolas or Taj Mahals Aquatic Centers.

Roger Stone,

Kirkland
