This use to be a toll bridge at on time. looks like it should have stayed one if they no longer have the funds for it.

Maybe if you had prioritized some fucking projects the sewers , the roads, kcpsd, and the bridge, the airport would be last in the queue!

12:29 you are on the money. TOLL BRIDGE FOR THE scenic rout Where all the lights are bright on BROADWAY.

City Hall would rather see the bridge shut down than spend one dime on repairing or replacing it. Some legacy for old Buck.

there is simply a delay in appropriating the funds.

We don't so shit without the appropriate level of Africant-American Engineering.
