Sherman-Minton down...long-run consequences?

According to WLKY, the S-M bridge was handling 35% of bridge traffic (81 of 235K). Turning the coin over, that means the other two bridges will handle 55% more traffic now.

Just think what would happen if we lost the Kennedy too, even temporarily...

Even with the S-M, our bridges were insufficient-- and a threat to business. With this problem, the likelihood of Ford, GE, and especially UPS leaving or diminishing their footprint is even greater.

Thanks again, to the geniuses, political hacks, and self-serving rich people who have stood in the way of the obvious infrastructure improvements .

He said "obvious."

Your devil's in the details, me thinks.

Oops, I meant to ask: Can you define these "obvious" improvements?

I guess so: an East End bridge.

Interestingly, I feel like we've had a similar, frustrating lack of specificity from many/most of the no-tolls folk.
