Construction Makes Cyclist's Commute Dangerous
Submitted by: Stephanie Chavez
Construction on the F Street Bridge, right in front of the Ramada Hotel is making the commute for some cyclists and pedestrians scary. Rose Fry, has been getting around town on her bike for years, and now that the F Street Bridge is down to one lane only, she say's it's only a matter of time before somebody winds up hurt. Fry says the tiny sidewalk they're forced to use right now is a safety hazard, and an alternative route for cyclists and pedestrians should be created while the construction is completed. WYDOT officials say the bridge is under some simple maintenance right now, and the project is expected to take about six weeks.
