Just got the word from a * very * credible source at metro van that the bridge is going to be decommissioned. Really too bad
.seems like a decision based on too little information and too much concern for liability. I sure hope that it gets replaced by a pedestrian /bike bridge.

I don't "want" anything. I do expect that a review of options will be done, and clearly this is a multi-year project. I doubt "do nothing" is an option, demoing the bridge is probably the bare minimum.

Is your name Drew too?!

It's apparently now officially a lake.

Lake Seymour

No more bridge either

Time to build a booter at the end of bottletop for lake dirt jumps?

Vanna, I'd like to buy a word.

Can't use "Lake Seymour" since the Seymour Lake name is already taken by reservoir behind the dam.

The guy from Metro is suggesting Boulder Lake.

I vote for the name "Insta Lake". Its the 21st century, for chrissakes. No more archaic naming of lakes after animals that are locally extinct or implements or terms of phrase nobody uses anymore. The pioneer days are over. Its time to get contemporary. A close second or third would be Texting Lake or Selfie Lake, because you can stop at the lakeside and send texts or take a selfie of yourself at the new lake, flashing faux gang handsigns for emphasis.

Ummm … they can get up past the dam, so I assume it is technically feasible.

No, they don't get past the dam anymore…
