    Tomorrow morning the DOT Commissioner, Sadik-Khan, and assorted elected officials will reopen the Manhattan Bridge archway to the public, connecting two sections of Dumbo that have remained separated for 17 years, as anyone walking or biking around that area knows. The 46-foot wide arch, on Water Street between Adams Street and Anchorage Place, will be open for “non-vehicular use,” now that it’s no longer being used for storage and operations by the DOT’s Division of Bridges. They swept away their metal cuttings and joined the Dumbo Improvement District to replace them with lighting and benches and restore the cobblestones.
