Three Mile Slough Bridgbb
Posted January 13, 2017, by Kris (Krishvn [at] hotmail [dot] com)

Twice since this bridg was considered done it has broken down one time on a Saturday coming home from grocery shopping I was stuck in my car unable to go home car full of food. Again last night after working all day driveing an hour to get home only to arrive at bridge not working only thinking a boat is passing under then after 30 minutes of I idelling in my car to see people walking up to bridge and back saying it is stuck no way to know how long so I have to turn around drive an hour pay another toll over Benicia bridge and come in via Fairfield ....took me 3 hours to get home usually takes me 45 minutes

Maybe the money used to repair should have used toward a new bridge...

There needs to be a system in place to tell the miles of cars lined up to go home what is happening maybe a number to call before we get to bridge to see if it is working....

Regretting buying my home out in the delta area now
