Hartford mayor Pedro Segarra (second from left) walks with community leader Bernadine Silvers across the newly dedicated Mike Peters Bridge, a pedestrian walkway linking the Connecticut Science and Convention Centers. The governor, the mayor, and family and friends turned out to officially open the 270 foot span. Mayor Mike, as he was fondly known, who led the city from 1993 to 2002, died of liver disease in 2009.
