WARNING: MAYFLY INVASION IMMINENT, BRIDGE COULD GO DARK


It's that time of year again, the mayflies are starting to hatch.  We will be monitoring the condition each day over the next weeks and will turn off the bridge lights as we see  necessary.  Please drive with caution and if walking or riding bike at night please use reflective clothing and a flashlight.

  2. why did we pay millions of taxpayer money to move the lights back to where they were before they were moved up to get away from the May Flies ?
