Just for those that haven't lived here long, the bridge is the only other crossing into town. Ask yourself what would happen if there was a major collision somewhere on or near the present highway bridge. No ambulance, fire truck or rescue vehicles could get across to the other side. Would have to get emergency vehicles from the west. Just the last two winters the old Big Eddy Road and Bridge saved a lot of travellers bacon, just by being there. And if you don't like traffic, well get used to it, we are a "RESORT COMMUNITY".
