i can not believe the township spent nearly 1 million dollars to build this stupid bridge when all they complain about is lack of funds. the bridge will be a huge waste of tax payer money and will probably be filled with grafitti and gang signs with in a week or two...the township supervisor must be out her damn mind building a bridge there...why dont you donate 1 million to the schools to help kids get a better education, the teachers are fighting to keep their jobs and yet they have the money to spend a million dollars on a bridge that was not needed

Aww stop with the sour grapes!

Wherever there is progress, there is some negative nancy with a conspiracy theory!

How about if we all live in a cave and make no progress at all, then maybe "some" would be happy!

So YOU are saying "they" need to come to you and take your list of 3 or 4 things and focus on that because what you think is important, is the only important thing?

Last year in mid June I was driving west on 5 Mile just at that location, and a young mother with a tiny baby in a stroller were walking eastbound on the shoulder of the westbound side (because there was no pedestrian walkway)...the stroller was about a 3rd of the way over the line and in the lane with traffic...cars were swerving around them at nearly 40 miles per hour!

Yeah I would say that this bridge was certainly needed!

Not to mention that without beautification projects, it is hard to attract new residents and business (ie tax revenue).

Step back and look at the bigger picture, and stop being afraid of progress and change, is all I am saying here.

I like the bridge.
Sometimes when I'm walking over there I like to set the girls free.
i love the fell of the cool air on my skin.
