NRHP[edit]

The article says that because the bridge was placed on the National Register of Historic Places, If the state wanted to demolish the bridge, it would then be subject to a popular vote. There is no such requirement in the NRHP enabling legislation (which is actually quite weak in terms of protection). If there was a requirement, it would have to have been through state or local landmark designation, or was just done as a popular referendum for this instance. (To be true this may be an error in the source, as the NRHP is often misunderstood.) --Dhartung | Talk 21:51, 2 June 2008 (UTC)

Sorry, didn't mean to imply that NRHP status caused this. Let me add more detail. howcheng {chat} 23:36, 2 June 2008 (UTC)
That clears it up nicely. Thanks! --Dhartung | Talk 03:20, 3 June 2008 (UTC)

Demolition Date[edit]

I wanted to point out the bridge definitely was not demolished in 1995. I moved to east Kennewick in October 1992 and the green bridge was already gone by then. I traveled over the Ed Hendler bridge many times in 1992 and would have certainly noticed it if it had been there.

I am doing some digging to find out what date it was actually demolished and will report back. I believe it was demolished in 1990 or 1991, according to what locals tell me, but I will find out.

I got that 1995 date from the Cable Bridge article, but so far have been unsuccessful in verifying this (or any date whatsoever) via web/news searches. Anything you can find will be helpful. Thanks. howcheng {chat} 18:27, 19 November 2009 (UTC)
