2009-2012: Footbridge to stadium
In 2009, the Krafts proposed an $8 million pedestrian footbridge to Gillette Stadium over the busy Route 1 highway. The proposal was rejected.
The town of Foxborough itself submitted the same proposal in 2011 and the MassWorks Infrastructure Program rejected it again. The town said the bridge would have been key to opening up economic development on land across the highway from the stadium, which will later be proposed to be used for a casino.
