Letter to the Editor: Build a bridge too

Re: Marriott Marco Island Beach Resort and Spa and Smokehouse Bay Bridge.

There’s so much concern about the condition of the (Smokehouse Bay) bridge and the amount of traffic that goes over it. The Marriott expansion will bring even more traffic, including heavy trucks and equipment, especially during construction. This is not a good combination. The expansion should not be approved until after the bridge is replaced.

If Marriott truly wants the expansion, perhaps they should pay for replacing the bridge.
