Will they ever consider widening this bridge? It is such a traffic nightmare in the morning, evenings, on weekends. Why spend money to repave it when the money could be used to help with traffic flow.
I would like to see it closed forever
With the amount of traffic that uses that raod , and bridge. Perhaps it would be a better use of money, too widen it instead of resurfacing, thinking big picture.
Perhaps resurfacing was needed, but surely not before widening this one lane bridge. Why would resurfacing take 3 weeks? Why would we not widen this bridge? Has anyone that has been able to make decisions with this road actually studied the traffic pattern? Has anyone seen that it takes 10 minutes to travel across the bridge during the rush hour because cars are stacked in line waiting for one car to go at a time? Lloyd Avenue, since the opening of Royal Farms, has become a main road, and a royal pain to the nearby community of children and adults that try to safely cross the street to get to Lloyd Park, especially since the speed limit was changed from 25 mph to 35 mph. If the police department needs quick funding, then in one hour's time, many tickets could be handed out for driving greater than the 35 mph limit because many drivers are well over the speed limit. Before spending a lot of money for a 3 week process, all scenarios should be looked at with regards to what really is best. It does not appear to be the case that this was done.
