Letter: Seeking allies to press for bridge vote
The other day I got a call from Keith Speranza asking to have his name added to the original letter calling for a vote of all the citizens on the proposed new Highway 82 bridge over the Colorado River and signed by 12 people. He suggested that I issue another call for signatures. In addition to Keith Speranza here are the names of people so far who have asked to be included: Arlene Stabenow, Phil Gallagher, Steve Campbell, Sherry Reed, Patrick Hunter, and June and Pat Copenhaver.
You may write, email or call me: Jim Breasted, 678 Sopris Ave., Carbondale, CO 81623, 970-963-4190, jamesbreasted@Q.com.
My next action will be to forward the letter with all signatures to the county commissioners of Eagle, Pitkin and Garfield counties asking that the three counties cooperate by scheduling a tri-county vote on the question of a Glenwood Springs Highway 82 bypass. I will also suggest that the three counties consider forming a Regional Transportation Authority (similar to RFTA) to help CDOT plan, design and fund the bypass.
We are all in this together.
