Bob Hill Organizes Walk Across Big Four Bridge Sunday
Thursday March 27, 2014
Mayor to join Hill and others for 1 p.m. event
Writer, naturalist and businessman Bob Hill is organizing a walk across the Big Four Bridge Sunday, March 30, at 1 p.m. to show community support for the popular span.
Mayor Greg Fischer said he will join Hill, who is an “unabashed fan” of the bridge, for the walk and he urged others to join them.
“The Big Four Bridge is a community treasure and I want the many thousands of people who have come to love it to join and show our unity on Sunday,” Fischer said.
Hill said he was concerned that, in the wake of violence by youth last weekend, some people would not feel safe or comfortable visiting the bridge.
Sunday’s walk will be just before the University of Louisville women’s basketball team plays LSU in a 2:30 p.m. Sweet 16 NCAA game at the nearby KFC Yum Center. The Mayor urged fans planning to attend the game to join the walk.
