Old Bridge can handle extra weight

Thank you Terry Hanik for your rendition on the Old Bridge a week or so ago (Walking bridge a step in the right direction, Trail Times, June 13).

However, when the time arrives to remove the sewer line off the Old Bridge there will be a front end loader – a 2-ton truck – probably a service vehicle and about six workers for a few days from one end of the bridge to another removing the old sewer line.

When they are all done and the weight removed, the Old Bridge will still be there standing proud and strong.

The Old Bridge should be open now to vehicles and people for about another 20 years or until we can afford to build a new bridge.

Everybody would be happy.

John Carter,
