Yesterday at a Brooklyn Bridge Park board of directors meeting there was news about the cost and construction time frame for the park’s Squibb Park Bridge and sports fields at Pier 5. A firm called Kelco Construction Inc. was awarded a $6.2 million contract to build the bridge, the Post reports, and a $19.2 million contract to construct three turf fields and a playground on Pier 5. The 396-foot-long pedestrian bridge will connect Brooklyn Heights to Pier 1, the section of the park where a hotel and condo will be built. Construction on both the bridge and Pier 1 is supposed to start next month and be finished by next fall.
