well I in the most part think that the "temporary bridge" is about to fly apart at the seams. This bridge is a well tested and highly used type of bridge around the world. That doesn't mean that the use that this bridge is put through year after year isn't going to take a toll!(no pun intended) WShile it is known that the textile bridge is in dire need of replacement, that doesn't mean that we can't look at the other defienciecies that this city suffers from. We are the people that elect the officials that run our government! TELL THEMM TO DO SOMETHING! We deserve it for all the money we pay them! Let them earn it! thank you!

The Rourke Bridge is one yr under 30 yrs old. I use it almost daily. It is scary as it rattles and vibrates. It is for the people we elected to fix this problem.
To look at everything they spend our property tax dollars on including benefits and raises, school events, etc. and ask themselves if a bridge croaking and most certainly taking lives is something to ignore.

This temporary bridge has lasted about as long as the permanent variety in these parts... I remember when this bridge went up as a freshman at U Lowell. I never thought it would still be there for the next generation...
