The rebellion against the commuter bridge


Public protests began!


A petition requesting / demanding a permissive referendum was circulated by concerned Dryden residents.

493 Dryden residents signed the petition in just in 26 hours on July 16 - 17, 2021!

And now, almost 600 signatures of registered Dryden voters are on record!

An overwhelming show of support for putting the question of land acquisition related to the $3,000,000+ pedestrian bridge up for a vote.


"Let us hope the town leaders are willing to listen to common sense."

On August 19, 2021, Mr. Schickel spoke at the Dryden Town Board meeting:

The petition was rejected!
There will be NO vote!


In 2015, the Dryden Town Board and the Rail Trail Task Force worked with
"Design Connect Cornell"

Their conclusions support the safer "Trail Only" options but are being ignored.

When Is A Bridge NOT a Bridge? 

When It Splits The Community!
