Brown thinks removing the Skyway is a reasonable outcome, but since it's a state and federal issue, he'd want those levels of government to handle the cost.
"If the resources are there to take down the Skyway, it's a good thing, but right now, we're going to continue to agressively move our waterfront development forward," Brown said.
He spoke with reporters on Tuesday as he and other city officials conducted their annual inspection of the city's winter snow-fighting fleet.
Brown says if removing the Skyway is to be the eventual outcome, it will be expensive. And as for a new way of getting from one side to the other, Brown had this to say.
"I'm sure in the study that Congressman Higgins is calling for, that would all be contemplated in a project to remove the Skyway and have the appropriate crossing between the inner and the outer harbor," Brown said.
In the meantime, Brown says the city does remain focused on the development of the waterfront, and the effort to revitalize Ohio Street.
