Am I the only one who is preturbed by the bridge being dumped in the water? I think they are covering it up by saying "oh we are making a reef". Oh well obviously a lot of natural marine ecosystems are going to be covered by HUGE cement blocks. Why couldn't we just take the bridge out of the water and use more related substances to build a reef if they really wanted one. If they are going to take all the time and money to build one then do it the right way! I just don't believe the answer is to dump it then move it around so it looks better. Just get it out and leave it naturally beautiful, thats my vote.

Default because good science supports it...

The News-Press, news-press.com, Sanibel Island, Old bridge becomes new reef (http://www.news-press.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20070906/NEWS0116/309060001/1002/RSS01 - broken link)

looks like some positive results to me. In Stuart Florida we did the same thing with the old Roosevelt Bridge. The fishing has improved, and all reports so far are good... as well as having support from the local enviromental group.

Is there any evidence that supports your position?
