Wachusett Aqueduct Bridge
Posted December 23, 2017, by Maria Elena Ferrero (marmece [at] aol [dot] com)

Dear all,

I'm contacting anyone who would have some kind of authority to oversee citizens safety while driving or walking around the Wachusett Aqueduct Bridge.

I'm a Northborough resident and drive under this bridge everyday, I've been almost crashed so many times because drivers come at full speed crossing the midline right under the bridge. We need to take precautions in order to save innocent lives. My recommendations would be to build "speed bumps" specially before the bridge, southbound.

Thank you,
