I don’t know about you, but I bet you feel the same way when you see someone walking on the side of the road like this… “What on God’s Earth is he doing walking across this bridge???”
When did walking become a second-rate form of transportation?
When did we become a society that discourages the cheapest form of transportation and altogether stop constructing the proper infrastructure needed to encourage it?
It seems like such a pitiful afterthought to even put a half-assed attempt of a sidewalk like this on the bridge. You’ve clearly sent a message that says, “Sorry bud, you need a car to across this river.” However, I have seen a few stray humans loose on the Bob Michel Bridge before. No wonder why everyone thinks it isn’t safe to walk or ride your bike anymore. We have built our cities around the people hunting monsters we worship so much.
sucks for this guy…
I don’t know about you, but I wouldn’t want my name attached to this bridge. It’s ironic how an area discovered by French settlers still hasn’t been able to capture what the French do so well – create beautiful, walkable environments.
