  • Is this not close to the same place where a head on wreck claimed a womans life that a big rig was in?Maybe there is a problem on the hwy there for big trucks.The state should investigate.

  • This is the 3rd tractor trailer wreck in 2 years in that area. It does need to be investigated. The bridges are way too narrow on 41-A.

  • In the late 1950's 41-A was a narrow concrete road and was widened probably 2 feet on each side and then paved, but the bridge has never been widened. The same goes for the Fall Creek bridge. One has to really pay attention to driving when entering the bridge.

  • Since the bridge is already partially demolished, they seriously need to consider tearing the whole thing down and widening this bridge AT LEAST a few feet on both sides.

  • The repair and widening would be a great idea. I travel across this bridge at least twice a day and it can be very uncomfortable when meeting on-coming traffic.

  • Especially when it is raining, people are going as fast as they would when it is dry, tail-gating you, and it feels like you could hydro-plane at any second... there is NO room for error here. I agree with Darrick. It is a solid idea which could save lives.
