Jordan Johnson is a spokesperson for the Clinton Foundation.
In November 2007 Johnson explained the delay on the renovation of the Rock Island Bridge on the grounds of the William J. Clinton Presidential Center and Park. "No doubt we originally didn't expect it to cost that much. But the price of steel is the main cost factor, along with other aspects we wanted to include to ensure we were going to get it right and have a structure everyone can be proud of." Johnson said that the Foundation had met with officials in Pittsburgh who were pursuing a similar bridge renovation project, and explored the possibility of federal grant programs to fund part of the cost.
Despite the obstacles, he said, "The importance of the bridge in terms of River Trail usage, economic development and tourism purposes is clear, and we are proceeding with finalizing the best possible plan from both a design and cost standpoint."
