Councilors Vote 4-1 For Enhanced Bridge Linking Belmont To Downtown

The City Council made a decision Monday involving the Belmont Bridge, but the option they chose is not popular with some of its neighbors. The councilors voted 4-1 to create what’s called an enhanced bridge, which would be shorter than the current structure. Kathy Galvin cast the only vote against that option. Galvin wanted to try a new set of architects that does not have the recent track record of MMM Design. She says she could not endorse the status quo. The current Belmont Bridge (pictured) was approved in 1961. None of the councilors supported an underpass option, which carries a higher price tag. Amy Gardner is a Belmont resident who backs creating an underpass. Gardner is not happy that the MMM architects will continue to do business with the city.
