      Friends of the Albany Broad Avenue Bridge Group invited an architect to discuss ways to re-use the bridge.

      Neil Clark, an architect that was in charge of renovating the 14th Street bridge in Columbus, Georgia, spoke to the group Thursday afternoon.

      Njemile Ali, Chairperson of Friends of Albany Broad Avenue Bridge, says "Columbus has taken what was once a sewer treatment facility and turned it into a beautiful river walk. We already have a beautiful river walk and we just want to take it to the next level and preserve what we already have and keep it for future generations."

      The group is continuing their efforts to save the bridge with an online petition that already has close to nine hundred signatures and still wants more community support.
