    How will they get it done so fast, when other tiny bridges in ENC take a year or more to finish? Someone needs to find out how they plan to do this and make sure others are done as quickly. As long as they are safe when they get finished with this rushed job.

    I sure hope that they replace it with a bridge that finally follows their complete streets pledge and has real bike lanes and a pedestrian walkway since so many people bike along Portertown Rd. instead of just narrow car lanes.
