McKinney making things happen for Bithlo. Love it! Can't wait for someone else to take credit for this. ;-)

UGO? What part of Bithlo are they from? Oh thats right THEY AREN'T! But guess who gets the credit for groveling to the outside invaders of Bithlo in the evil attempt to "transform" Bithlo from a livable rural community into McKinneys urban ghetto. Making BAD things happen in Bithlo is more accurate(No one else wants to take credit for this unfairness and we all know it!)Go back to Conway and love your neighbor. Bithlo deserves better than dictatorship!

This bridge doesn't have much pedestrian traffic!! The barrier that has been created for protection has created a hazard for vehicles!!! I almost got hit because of someone overcompensating for the barrier thats too close to the highway!!

I actually see people crossing it or coming up to it pretty often. A lot of times at night, when the barrier is needed most for them. I'm just glad I don't have to walk across it!

7 people died at the intersection o 6th and Hwy. 50 before the stop light as put in yet not 1 person has even been injured on the bridge!Just goes to show that politicians always waste funds around election time trying to pacify constituents frivilous concerns.The main person wanting this waste of public money is not even a resident of Bithlo! Thanks UGO!(Unwanted greedy outsiders) We have more important issues than those of people that refuse to live among us.Why don't you build a one way bridge back to Conway?
