Washington bridge work should have started already

July 8, 2012

Why is it the city of Sedalia hasnít started on the Washington Avenue bridge project? It has been going on seven months now.

All we hear about is a new fire station, curbs, streets, storm sewers, alleys and sidewalks. That new fire station will not help people on the north side of Sedalia. They need the Washington Avenue bridge open.

In September, they said it was in good shape. Then in December, they said someone told them the bridge was bad and they closed the bridge. If I had not told them that the bridge was bad, people would still be going over it.

It doesnít take that long to get going on a project ó letís get going on it. Sedalia is my town and I live on the north side.
