South End Bridge Clean Up
Posted April 9, 2019, by Wayne Rodrigues (Laughingwildwolf [at] yahoo [dot] com)

I am wondering who is responsible for cleaning the Pedestrian walkway over the South End Bridge. I want to commute to work from Agawam to Springfield, but the bridge it covered with broken glass and debris. Iím afraid of getting a flat tire on my bike. I would like the walk way cleaned up ASAP. Thanks
