Every day, alert “06880” reader Jane Sherman drives over the small North Avenue bridge that crosses the Saugatuck River.
And every day she is dismayed to see the weeds and grasses that have grown up along it, since its reconstruction last year.
She called Public Works. They told her there is no money available for maintenance. They’re busy trimming trees on Easton Road, and doing other jobs to protect public safety.
Jane says, “I’m distressed. I feel like stopping and weeding the area myself.”
But she knows they’ll just grow back. Weeding is not a one-time job.
“This bridge is beautiful and new,” Jane says. “What a shame that Westport intends to let the site deteriorate.”
