It's too narrow for today's traffic flow. We're not talking about a bridge on some quaint, seldom used country road. This roadway is far too busy and this bridge is far too narrow. It definitely needs to be replaced with a wider and safer bridge. It has well served its usefulness, but its time has come. Say good bye to the old McMillan bridge.

They should just put another bridge right next to it so it can be preserved. Have it be one direction and the new bridge be the other.
