Offer to test Old Bridge rejected

Trail resident willing to test Old Bridge himself.

I delivered a letter to Mayor Mike Martin to prepare the Old Bridge for service by cars and trucks.

I offered to drive my 2007 Chev Impala model, weighing 3,500 lbs, followed by a few friends with trucks and cars.

Good test.

The sidewalk of steel remains a good sidewalk and should never have been closed. In fact, the Old Bridge should never have been closed.

When the construction company from Calgary comes to build our new pipe and pedestrian bridge, they are going to need our Old Bridge and will use it. City Hall will give them the keys to the bridge I guarantee you. Let’s test it for them now and have it open.

Mayor Martin rejected my offer.
