Wow!...One for the good guys, finally. If Grosse Ile wants a bridge they can build and pay for it themselves. Oh, I forgot the state offered to build them a bridge but they declined. Boy first they want a bridge then they don't now they want one again. I wish they would make up their minds.

If the township had spent that kind of effort going after Wayne County we'd have our new bridge.Kurt Kobiljak and the township board need to be ousted for a more responsible local government! Oh, by the way; did we really need the "BLUE BLUNDER BRIDGE" at I-94 & Telegraph? No! That money could have been used for a new bridge to Grosse Ile.Everytime I cross the bridge,my car window is open so I can swim to safety when it falls into the river because of its deteriorating condition!

They should close down Van Horn so that vital jobs can be brought this immediate area and the City Of Trenton can also get the added tax base. The fact that it inconvenient some is not nearly as important. Let me get this straight...the people of Grosse Ile are angry because it would be inconvenient...HEY, YOU LIVE ON AN ISLAND! It is going to be inconvient. The people of Grosse Ile weren't talking about convenience when they wanted the new bridge to come through Grosse Ile. Hey, that would have been very convenient.
