  1. My family lives in that area and that bridge was destroyed back in 1999 from the storm Floyd. We believe that the village had a few contractors there in the past 20 years doing repairs. That bridge should’ve been replaced from the funds that the village received from FEMA ,Storm Floyd Destroyed that whole area.

  2. Let’s not wait until it becomes more dangerous and unusable. Fix it up before winter.

  3. Why would somebody put thumbs down on this , This is about safety.
