Ocean Avenue Footbridge Repairs Underway

Workers have been replacing boards on the Ocean Avenue footbridge all week. The work is part of regular maintenance of the bridge and does not change any of the design elements. Not all of the slots will be repaired, as Community Board 15 Chairperson Theresa Scavo told us she would like, as the city has cited financial concerns. Scavo is worried that nails sticking up can trip residents traversing thee historic bridge, as well as knots that have developed in the boards that can snag women’s heels and children’s feet.
