Fixing Margaret McDermott bike lanes could cost taxpayers millions, memo says

A memo issued to the Dallas City Council on Friday night outlined the estimated cost and timeline to repair problems with the cables supporting the bridge's hike and bike lanes.

Fixing the pedestrian/bicycle lanes on the Margaret McDermott bridge could cost Dallas taxpayers millions of dollars and take more than a year and a half to complete.

A memo issued to the Dallas City Council on Friday night outlined the estimated cost and timeline to repair problems with the cables supporting the bridge’s hike and bike lanes.

The westbound lanes could be opened as soon as June of next year and cost as little as half-a-million dollars. Fixing the eastbound lanes would take considerably longer and could cost up to ten million dollars.

The City Council is expected to vote on this in December.
