Braves road and bridge projects push public cost past $300m, still no one sure where money will come from

...because the state refused to pay for that delayed pedestrian and shuttle-bus bridge that is set to leave Braves fans walking along the side of a highway to get to games for at least the stadium’s first season. The bridge itself is projected to cost $9 million (though nobody apparently really thinks it can be built for that amount), plus another $3.5 million is needed to upgrade a parking deck that it would connect to. Right now nobody knows where the money will come from…

On the one hand, the Braves new stadium project continues to cluster all the fuggs that could ever be clustered. On the other hand, Cobb County has to pay for this, not me. #winning!
