Re: Bayou Vista Train Bridge

about 17 or 18 yrs ago it was proposed and we were told the the RR was there 1st and if we wanted it raised it would cost us 7 million. that was then, can you imagine what it would cost today? personally i like the fact that we don't have the huge boats and property values here, but, that's just me. with a little imagination a $$$$ you can get a T-Top modified to collapse or fold down to get under the bridge. i still remember the old bridge, that was even less clearance. if you saw a boat in the bay without a windshield, you knew they were from BV.
