Remind me why Trail needs another bridge

"Being of a bright sort, I noticed that they didn’t have to swim or build a raft to cross the river."

I clipped and kept a photo that was in last Wednesday’s issue of the Trail Times (Sept. 24): it was of children walking across the Victoria Street bridge.

Being of a bright sort, I noticed that they didn’t have to swim or build a raft to cross the river.

And I wondered if any​ one could remind me: why do we need to spend a few million dollars to build another bridge?  It certainly can’t be to help us get from one side  of the river to the other – we’re obviously quite able to do that now.
