Bridge Equity: Back on Plaques

A handful of Metro Council Members is not satisfied with the December 2005 renaming and signage of Gateway Korean Veterans Memorial Bridge. They either want to rename the street, too, or they're pushing for a plaque, which is something that no other Downtown "Memorial" bridge has. These members are making the Korean Veterans seem a lot less grateful for our city's remembrance than are the Police, "Victory," and the family of Rev. Kelly Miller Smith. Why ask the taxpayers to waste any more money on a plaque when they've named an entire bridge after the vets with standard signage? Why brook such ingratitude and such a self-serving sense of entitlement from two or three council members?

  1. None of our bridges are grand enough for a name, other than the street they support. A bridge with a name is "Golden Gate" or "Brooklyn." I hear about the Sillman Evans bridge on traffic reports all the time, and I still have no idea what road they are talking about.
