  1. WE OWN THE PROPERTY BY THE BRIDGE AND I WAS WONDERING IF THIS BRIDGE WILL EVER BE OPENED FOR WALKING ACCESS TO THE BLUE DIAMOND TRAIL FOR HIKING? IT’S A SHAME THAT WE CAN NOT GET ACROSS TO THE WAYNE NATIONAL FORREST ANY LONGER WITHOUT HAVING TO DRIVE AROUND TO THE OTHER SIDE. KINDA DEFEATS THE PURPOSE OF HAVING A BRIDGE IN THE FIRST PLACE. WITH ALL OF THE GAS WELLS GOING IN DOWN THAT WAY THERE SHOULD BE SOME MONEY TO REPAIR THIS NATIONAL LANDMARK RIGHT?????
