Save The Johnson Street Bridge

This petition had 68 supporters

Support this petition to save our city's heritage landmark, The Johnson Street Bridge, locked upright for all time. Our bridge has held records for a counter weight style bridge since 1924. Joseph Strauss designed this Bascule bridge and later designed The Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. Don't let them tear down our heritage landmarks, that define our city. It's criminal ! Keep it locked in an upright position. It will compliment the replacement Johnson Street Bridge, that's on its right. They are a similar direction lifting bridge style. Imagine both bridge spans raised together, side by side, at the end of Johnson street, like a salute from the past to the future !  We can transform the deck of the bridge in to a canvas. Have local artists display a mural,that we can change every five or six months. Email me if you have any thoughts Sheldon:
