ALBANY, N.Y. - It's being called a golden opportunity to literally bridge the gap between Albany and Rensselaer counties.
Lawmakers and advocates for a revamped pedestrian walkway spoke Thursday about the project -- the idea is to rebuild and reconstruct the Livingston Avenue Bridge to allow pedestrians and cyclists to cross the Hudson.
So far the proposed project has been getting a lot of attention across the map.
"There's been movement from urban and suburban to get this bridge back to the way it originally was," said Assemblyman Jack McEneny (D-Albany).
Nothing will happen with the bridge just yet, it's slated to be replaced in 2017 as part of New York's high speed rail initiative.
