Bid to name Airport Parkway footbridge faces delays amid city’s lawsuit

A family’s bid to name the Airport Parkway footbridge after a Hunt Club man who was struck and killed as he crossed the busy road could be shelved for years.

“Everybody was disappointed that the naming would be delayed so long,” said Hunt Club resident Brandy Dagenais.

She and her family have been advocating that the pedestrian and cycling bridge, which connects South Keys and Hunt Club, be named after her brother-in-law Kenny Dagenais, who was fatally struck by a car as the 26-year-old cut across the parkway on Oct. 22, 2007, not far from where the bridge was ultimately built.
