It was with great joy that I noted the story on the front page of this (past) week's paper that ODOT is about to take bids on finishing the Molalla River Bridge project...at last.
I don't know about anyone else, but it feels like we've been reading about the starts and stops of this project for a couple years now. Weather, unexpected discoveries and other assorted problems seem to have plagued this project almost from the outset.
So naturally I was delighted to read that the project seems to be back on track and that we can look forward to some resolution to the deplorable driving conditions that currently exist on the bridge.
Thanks to the Canby Herald for keeping us updated and a somewhat reserved thanks to ODOT for not forgetting us. I will have to add that I'll believe it's done when I see it. I don't think I'm alone in that, either..
