Bridge should be open to pedestrians

A rationale why the old bridge should be open to walkers.

Good to see Guy Bertrand’s column on May 31 (Old bridge left out of ambitious downtown plan).

A month ago when the sewer line, which runs across the old bridge, broke I’m sure it was not repaired by two guys with a wheel barrow and a screw driver.

The equipment used to repair the sewer line probably weighed about 5 tons. We would just like to walk across the old bridge. Like Guy Bertrand says, put up a sign and use at your own risk.

There are just a few people that want the bridge closed and there are only about 1,000 of us that want it open. The rest don’t really care.
