ENVIRONMENTAL OPPOSITION TO THE FT. HAMER BRIDGE11/12/02
The state is proposing that a bridge be built across the Manatee River in Eastern Manatee County, at a cost of 70 million dollars. Nearby residents and some environmental groups say the proposed six-lane bridge will encourage rampant development and forever change the ecosystem and the quality of life in that part of the county. For that reason there is widespread opposition to the project. Phil Compton and Jonno Miller of the Sierra Club were the guests on this program.
