A bit more of a direct route to Dela's story, this kid is my hero for the day!

LYNDON, Vt. (AP) A 4-year-old Vermont boy has posted a colorful, handmade sign to warn drivers about a beloved coverage bridge's height and weight limits in an effort to ensure the structure isn't damaged again.

In May, a food delivery truck that was too large caused more than $50,000 in damage to the Miller's Run Bridge in Lyndon.

The damage to the bridge built in 1878 saddened Dela Stoddard-McGrath, of Wheelock, who uses the bridge on his way to and from preschool, the Caledonian Record reported.

"He wanted to check up on it all summer long to see the progress and when it was going to open," Henekis Stoddard, Dela's mother, told mynbc5.com.

After the bridge reopened in August, Dela made his sign "to make cars not hurt the bridge," the boy said. He and a town official posted the temporary sign on Friday.

The sign warns, in an array of colors and in the young child's handwriting: "Stop! Back up if you're more than 11' 9" or 16,000 pounds."

Selectman Dan Daley said he thought the boy's request to post the sign was "awesome."
