The fifth bridge at the ‘narrows’


Today, the bridge is open to traffic with a weight limit imposed. Once emergency repairs are completed this spring the weight restriction will be lifted, but the bridge will remain a single-lane crossing, controlled by traffic signals, until at least 2015, when permanent repairs are scheduled to begin.

[A news article about how emergency repairs to the bridge will impact traffic flow can be found on page 5. Additionally, this week’s editorial addresses the issue of decaying infrastructure.
