Erlanger Overpass
Posted November 11, 2010, by mrs. patrick (patrickwood [at] insightbb [dot] com)

HAS ANYONE CHECKED THE CRUMBLING OF THE BRIDGE LATELY.

IT IS FALLING DOWN. I WON'T SIT UNDER IT IF THE TRAFFIC IS BACKED UP..AND ANY CHANCE I GET I BYPASS IT BY DRIVING THRU NEIGHBORHOODS. I HAVE TALKED TO SEVERAL OF MY FRIENDS AND THEY FEEL THE SAME WAY. ARE THEY WAITING FOR SOMEONE TO BE HURT BADLY, OR FOR THE THING TO FALL DOWN. THE OVERPASS SHOULD HAVE BEEN REPAIRED OR REPLACED YEARS AGO. I SEE ROCKS FALL OFF THE CONCRETE WALLS ALL THE TIME.

SERIOUSLY......THIS SHOULD BE TAKEN CARE OF SOON...ESPECIALLY IF IT IS A HISTORICAL ITEM.
