I thought Obama's trillion dollar stimulus package was supposed to take care of such issues. Oh, right, it went to his cronies in the "green" industry that went bankrupt.

Maybe if they lowered tax's, they would have the money to fix the bridges. At least that's the way the republicans think.

I guess they didn't include Memorial bridge because it goes over the OH river? The recent "repair" on that bridge was a waste. @ weeks of notification, prior to closure for the "work" and the "drop off" that will nearly break your axle is just as bad as it ever was. What did the workers do? How much did the non-repair cost? Are they going to use any of the tolls to fix it? I understand that ambulances with a patient on board practically have to come to a standstill crossing it. They should fix it before they "teach" a lot of users that going over the P-burg bridge or going through Marietta are routes that really don't take much longer, are free, and don't have a road hazard to contend with.

Hey denver, is your "condition" painful? Everything comes back to politics with you. If the GOP wins in 2016 you are going to be one miserable individual, aren't you? Give it a rest, huh?

Evidently "Phoenix" you can' be {taught} you're still using it. As for the repair and the cost, I'm sure that's public information why don't you go down to the court house and find out

They won't do a thing until one collapses, probably with a school bus on it.

Denver, I had " Remington" but I closed it out once I moved across the ocean. I signed back in when a friend of mind told me of your friend rant against Asian people. I signed back in with a better name.. My own! That is more then you can say for yourself "Keyboard Cowboy" by the way you ever use our " Californian" own Google to find out that I was not lieing chump? Irvine, CA

With that said, my job is done, got rid of the racist bigot mental person. Denver, I know sometimes it is hard to believe that anyone can leave Pburg and have a very successful life. Many have done it and you can sit there in your chair and rant and rave about the Republicans and all that non sense. Just be happy isn't it great that everyone is different, how boring would it be if everyone was the same. Learn 3 things in life: Respect, Honor and Integrity is better then hate.

These are our people in little Pburg, why fight them?

I am out!!
