To lb I have lived close to both bridges and although the Springhill Jct. bridge is scary to cross, the Northport one is worse. What's even scarier is looking at it from the angle the picture was taken. Last weekend after tall ships, I stopped and was horrified to know that I had just taken my kids across something that unstable. Small peices of bridge were falling off as cars were crossing. Shirley, I agree, hope the bus does not be the unfortunate vehicle crossingt o have an accident.

Our bridge here in northport will be
replaced, right after someone gets hurt,or killed , i only hope it wont be
the school bus loaded with children. as far as putting weight restrictions on the bridge thats just a laugh,its lined with
cement barriors from one end right to the other all i can say is ,say a little
prayer before crossing our northport bridge.

Ms Gamble didn't mention that the orange cones were UPSIDE DOWN in the holes and the bottoms were flush with the road! We did take the Mud Creek road once but it is a longer route and over a dirt road-- not good in an emergency.

This bridge is a disgrace . Mrs. Gamble is correct in her reluctance to cross something that looks like that. Even in the far north we value our safety . Come on Nova Scotia step up and fix that mess.
