The Ukiah City Council is leaning toward keeping the Orr Street Bridge traffic-free. While they did not vote about it at their meeting this week, they directed city staff to look into how the bridge could be made structurally sound enough to support vehicles in emergencies or special circumstances. The bridge closed nine years ago when the Orchard Avenue Bridge came into use. The Daily Journal reports since then residents of the Wagenseller Neighborhood say their quality of life has improved significantly with less noise, less pollution, and fewer disruptions and some said they were surprised the Council was even considering reopening it to traffic. While residents and community groups agreed the deteriorating bridge has become attractive for transients to live under, they would like to see it improved for pedestrian and bicycle use.
