This is crazy!!!! A year? A year, that we will have to detour onto Market St? There goes your visitors to Goat Island. I sure want go down Eighth to Market to Wilkinson to Lakewood to get to an island I can see from my home. A year seems very long to finish such a project.

Really. How long has it typically taken you to build a bridge?

It should not take a year!!! You live in Huntersville, you have no idea how much traffic this small town encounters during rush hour. There are only 3 ways in and out and they are shutting one down. I feel like a year is too terribly long to complete this project. Its a small bridge at that.

It's great that they are repairing a bridge, but if it's going to take them this long they are better off building a brand new bridge.

In fact reading up on Americas crumbling infrastructure that's probably a better idea. Tear it down and build a better, modern and more importantly longer lasting bridge. Expensive, but it will save time and money in future.

But yea either they are building the bridge with 10 men or they building they are BSing. I think they are BSing.

I went by there a couple weeks ago. They have completely torn up the the Cramerton side of the the bridge landing, and there is nothing left of the concrete support pillar in the middle of the river except some twisted rebar.

Looks like work had begun on the landing, but they still have a LONG way to go yet.

When a house is 75% condemned on a high dollar lot/piece of land, what would a smart owner/contractor do if the infrastructure is say "totalled" as in a vehicle. Insurance money goes to the owner of totalled car and off to the junk yard it goes. Bridge, house same scenaio=LABOR INTENSIVE & not cost effective with a repair. With a houseit's pretty much standard procedure and cost effective and quicker to level house and rebuild. Saewith the tiny bridge. A year is way too long for such an easy ad smart alternative. So the smart councilmen are not so smart. Happy New Year anyway; if this is all you hve to whine about Mimi, then you re one luck lady.
