Paul Hopkins Park Bridge

The closed pedestrian bridge spanning Dickinson Bayou at Paul Hopkins Park in Dickinson will be replaced.

The small wooden footbridge spanning a finger of Dickinson Bayou in Paul Hopkins Park couldn’t have ranked very high on a list of projects critically needed after Hurricane Harvey.

Any such list would be long and crowded with high-dollar projects needed to help communities stay reasonably above water during the next Harvey.

How in the world can it cost so much to build an elevated sidewalk? Surely somebody is getting fat off of this project.
