The bridge

Give Mr Tata's move to switch $120M from rural road maintenance to new construction projects I have to wonder if in fact they have ILM City Council's blinders on as well. The city believes they can build River Walk with NO input from County but then try to rape county tourism revenue accounts for maintenance funding.
Here is DOT building rural roads and then taking away maintenance funding for them.
At some point in time something bad will happen to either the CF or IH bridges. Perhaps struck by a large ship or just a massive failure. The I-140 bridge and roads leading to it, do not have enough ramps leading into town (It's called a bypass for a reason).
I am glad they did that maintenance project on the CF, that will help, but given the ages of those two bridges I would hope they give the bridge into Wilmington a higher priority then the other projects.
