Why is the bridge there?

Oh, you surely must go read this lovely citizen history report about an (apparently) useless pedestrian bridge built in 1959 in suburban Minneapolis, Minnesota: The Mystery of the Bloomfield Bridge

Come for the initial mystery; stay for the great presentation and lovely old pictures and documents; enjoy the patient dedication of our historian; and celebrate the climax:

The best search terms were not road names, they were people's names.

  1. We live next to the Assumption Church in San Leandro, CA. There's a walking path next to our house. Owned by the government, it provides a well-used path to the church and school for parishioners. I bet the church Moms helped care for their schoolkids, especially when a new tall electric transmission tower was put in!
