Is it time to weed the bridge? Yes, it's long overdue!
The following video and photos were shot this afternoon on the Columbia end of the Veterans Memorial Bridge, showing crabgrass, and weeds - some higher than a yardstick - that have sprung up along the sidewalk. Although PennDOT is ultimately responsible for bridge maintenance, Columbia Borough had been cleaning the bridge and billing PennDOT, at least during the recent mayfly invasion. Regardless of who is responsible, however, the weeds and crabgrass need to be removed. They are an unsightly mess and create a negative first impression for motorists and pedestrians entering Columbia.
