Main Street Sophia Bridge

People of the area take caution when transporting or crossing in any means across the bridge at the main street Sophia stoplight. The main support braces are further cracked and very well could possibly lose the remaining support in the forums. Thus causing the bridge and such to collapse. Though there is a substantial amount of concrete with rebar supports and other retaining brackets that support the construction support density of the bridge. There is a high risk that the support retaining wall forum being cracked and further pushing away can cause further erosion under the bridge and cause the structure to give without warning. Thus the Mayor and other offices where given this information almost 2 years ago. When the bridge was first forming the cracks. When in which it could have been possibly fixed before the crack persisted helping to lessen the erosion until funds could be acquired to do otherwise. Thus in which I do insist that the people whom use the bridge for travel in any means to be aware of this risk. The main crack can be seen from the guard rail side of the bridge when facing the Black Diamond Power Company and The Parts Store. When standing at the guard rail the recess retaining wall is cracked almost completely and the main part that is holding the bridge is the rebar inner support though overtime the rebar starts to degrade upon exposure to the elements. With the saying in mind of, "The straw that broke the camels back," in mind. The rebar could give way. Therefore for the safety of the people please be aware that this is a standing high probable hazard. In which there is any disbelief you can go park down in the bottom by the tracks and walk over and look for yourself. You need not believe myself thus you can trust your own eyes and look. Just do be careful and allow others who travel the area of which to be aware as well.
