Officials on both sides of the Colorado River say the idea of building a second bridge between Bullhead City and Laughlin, Nev., remains alive despite little to show for years of discussion and debate.
However, the proposed second bridge may shrink to fit available funding amid some continued grumbling about the likely site.
Many residents of Bullhead City work in casino-resorts in Laughlin. The two towns are now linked by only one bridge.
Prominent Laughlin developer Bob Bilbray says he remains skeptical about the chosen site, but Bullhead City Manager Toby Cotter says he and Laughlin Town Manager Jackie Brady confirm there's agreement about the site.
That site has cleared environmental reviews and Brady says it wouldn't make sense to move to another location and start the process anew.
