To the editor: Cable bridge design is distinct
Hastings Minnesota 745 Spiral Boulevard 55033

To the editor,

I would like to be on record as favoring the cable bridge alternative. The box girder is just too "simple" and does nothing to make an impact or statement for Hastings. The cable bridge is distinct, and continues the history of having a river crossing that is unique, and an attraction that goes back to our world famous Spiral Bridge. This bridge will be our legacy for the next 50 to 75 years (As an added advantage, there are less piers in the flood plain.)
