THE BRONX - City Island residents are starting up a letter-writing campaign to let Mayor Michael Bloomberg know they want the latest bridge project scrapped because it will be an eyesore.

More than 100 residents signed a petition passed around at the City Island Reunion on Aug. 21 to end the city-led project to replace the City Island Bridge with a 150-foot steel cable structure.

The petition asked the city Department of Transportation to scale down the bridge replacement project that is expected to begin in about six months.
