City takes no action on TEE Center Walkway

Posted: Updated:

The pedestrian bridge from the Reynolds St. Parking Deck to the Augusta Convention Center may not be coming to fruition.

Commissioners voted to move ahead with no action on the walkway at Monday's committee meetings.

Commissioners voiced concerns that the $800,000 price tag to design and construct the bridge may be too much.

And that has Augusta Riverfront, LLC President Paul Simon unhappy.

He says the Commission backed out of their deal.

"The fact is, the crosswalk is a safety thing," says Simon. "I've heard so many people tell me what a great thing the crosswalk would be for safety. So I'm disappointed if they back up on it."

The issue will move to the next commission meeting without any recommendation.
