Red River Road Bridge
Posted October 10, 2019, by Joy Curtis (jomousie [at] yahoo [dot] com)

Please replace this bridge!! It is 100 years old and in need of replacement. The Red River Boat Dock is now open and people with boats and campers are traveling this bridge and it's only allowed 9 Ton Limit. This is not good for those living in this area if they need first responders - Fire apparatus, etc.

In my own personal situation, we are wanting to build a house on Red River Road just past this bridge and all the heavy equipment needed probably won't be able to cross this bridge.

Please take into consideration the bridge collapses in the United States in the last few years. This bridge is too old to continue having heavy daily traffic on it.

Thank you.
