Worth it or wasted: Courtney Campbell pedestrian bridge

Posted: Updated:
CLEARWATER (FOX 13) -

For many years it was just a dream, and now that dream is a reality. The new pedestrian bridge that runs parallel to the Courtney Campbell Causeway opened earlier this month.

The section that runs from the Hillsborough/Pinellas County line to Ben T. Davis beach cost $14.7 million. The money is a combination of state and federal transportation funds.

Back in January, when it was still just a computer rendering, we asked viewers if they thought it was worth it or a waste. Seventy-three percent thought it was a waste. Now that it's, open have opinions changed?
