Who owns the Jolly Bridge? Is it the city? Is it the county? Is it the state? If the city does not own it then the city (Marco taxpayers) shouldn't be paying toll to maintain and/or replace it. Who says we need a four lane bridge? Except at rush hour, the bridge isn't that busy most of the time. I grant you that in season there is more traffic but these people shouldn't be in such a hurry. Didn't they come here to relax and enjoy? I have heard people say that we need two exit lanes during hurricane season if there is an evacuation order. That could easily be handled by having a policeman at either end of the bridge and using the existing lanes as one-way as needed. A four-lane bridge wouldn't help because you only have two lanes to feed the bridge and only two lanes to carry traffic away. During hurricane season the island population is quite small. We don't need a 747 when a Piper Cub will do.
Also, why was Mr. Minozzi at a county meeting to discuss the bridge anyway? Was he there as a private citizen or was he there as the city's representative? If he was there on official business wouldn't that have been discussed at Council meeting? Maybe I missed it. Anyone know the answers?Robert Glaub (Marco Man notice that I put my name on my comments)
