GARAGE BAND-AID: In Detroit, Joe Guillen reported the city and the Red Wings plan to spend more than $3M on repairs to the Joe Louis Arena parking garage, "even though the garage might be torn down in a few years." Detroit will spend about $2M to "repair structural damage found during a recent inspection." The Red Wings "agreed in March to fix 600 parking spaces" at an estimated cost of $1.25M (DETROIT FREE PRESS, 8/17).
WALK THIS WAY: In Cleveland, Andrew Tobias noted city officials announced yesterday that the pedestrian bridge leading to FirstEnergy Stadium that spans the Cleveland Memorial Shoreway "will be closed indefinitely." City officials said that closing the bridge "in favor of two alternative routes, which will be marked with signs, will keep pedestrians safer and improve traffic flow around the stadium" (CLEVELAND.com, 8/18).
