I think they have to maintain it because if they don’t they’ll have to lower the weight limit below three tons. Eventually only cyclists and pedestrians would be allowed to use the bridge. And who would be happy then? The tyrannical bike lobby!
Aren’t they supposed to rebuild this bridge and with it potentially extend the junction hollow trail on to the other side of the train tracks to meet up with the jail trail, bypassing the cattle chute at second ave?
At least that’s the jist of what I got from the movepgh plan for the frazier st bridge reconstruction project.
