__Location 2:
Build a bridge for rollerbladers and bikers
Span: 100 feet
Crossing: Stream
Connects: Two bike paths

Special Notes:
"We're tired of getting bumped off the road by angry drivers! We want a simple bridge -- one that will connect the bike paths in East and West Craggy Rock over the city stream. We don't have much money, so we're not asking for much. We just want to get to work every day without risking our lives!"
-- Craggy Rock Bike-n-Blade Coalition
