Looking At Bridges

This is the old bridge/new bridge  frames and support, vastly different method, the old bridge was left to rot because the DOT hand neither the time or the desire to  take care of it. The New bridge is VERY easy to manage upkeep, and should need NO fixing for the First 10 years, the new Jamestown bridge is built alot like this and is paid for, So why are we, the Taxpayers and voters of NEWPORT County  Fixing these 2 bridges and the Newport and Mt Hope Bridge placed  on us?By contract and History the Newport bridge was built to benefit NEWPORT, not anyone else, and folks don't come over the NEWPORT bridge to stay in Middletown, Portsmouth or Tiverton, nore do they come to spend their money and work in those towns, The Sakonnet river Bridge supplies the tourist, the workers, the day tripper, the medical help to these towns, Yet the DOT and the GA are hellbent on tolling us, ARe we that rich? It's so unfair it,s  and a massive ripoff, if WE THE CITIZENS don't stop this this end of the island and Middletown will  suffer first, stop this, GO TO THE MEETING DEMAND MORE MEETING insist that STOP and our finding be included in any study, Don't let DOT sneak this thru, thats whats happening with these meeting, STOP THEM !!NO TOLLS
