It is inconvenient to have the bridge closed. With no explanations other than the barracades and tape it did not take long before someone removed the tape. I crossed safely last night and had no idea why the bridge was closed. Was glad to read the explanation.

A week to fix the bridge. Another advantage of bicycles. Would probably take weeks to fix a bridge made for cars. I suspect most people who drive regularly do not appreciate how much use this trail gets.

Based on the photo in the Record story a few sheets of plywood on the north side of the affected section would make it safe enough to cross on that side as a temporary measure until the decking could be fixed properly.

  • North America is eventually going to figure out that, for all the right reasons, we need more bicycles on our roads. Dust off your bicycle and go cycling. And if the gas-burning dinosaurs start to crowd you, it's your road and you paid for it. Take the lane for yourself.
