The only reason the bridge replacement is being looked at is because the gas industry wants to be able to cross it with their large trucks and right now they can't. That bridge has been ok for the locals and for the small amount of traffic that crosses it, it would be stupid for the state to spend money on replacing it...just do the few small repairs that it needs and leave it at that. I am sure though since the gas industry wants it replaced, it will be at the taxpayer's cost. So goes it in this state,*****up to the gas industry and to*****with the people that pay the taxes.

Well lets just forget about it then as the gas industry already is working with out that bridge and guess what when it finally becomes totally impossible to cross and they barricade it off to H.E.L.L with whoever needs to cross it sounds fair enough to me

And pinecr do you know what 3 ton is? You can't legally cross it with a simple f250 pick up truck but I bet some are

The state does not have the money for this because they did not make the gas industry pay what they really should be paying to be drilling in this state...that is the real issue.

That bridge was fine for local traffic for years, and you are right, the gas industry is forging the creek to cross over so all is well.

Sounds too me your anti-gas so probably not much reason to say that the limit has been reduced on that bridge long before the gas companies got here and that's a fact as I've done several jobs up at the fisher mine ver 10 years ago

Keep the old bridge. Build another only if gas money pays for it. If the industry is forced to drive around, they will pony up, when they have no choice.

Yes I agree build another but when the gas company is done tear it back out and take it to the next area they need a temporary bridge if they are to be responsible for the cost I say they just use temporary bridges.
