I see that the pedestrian bridge over the railroad needs repair. I've always admired it. In fact, I now consider it a landmark in Willmar.

Although I live several blocks away from it, I do use the bridge from time to time. I have noticed chunks of concrete missing from the platform. Fortunately, they are all along the edge, but it's only a matter of time before more chunks go missing.

I think I speak for a lot of people when I say that we need that bridge. Without it, that will only leave the walkway on the First Street bridge, and for some people, that's way out of their way. We need to fix the bridge. Replace it if it's necessary. But please, don't remove it completely.
