80 year old Manette Bridge in Bremerton, WA is being replaced. Each year that passes it becomes harder and harder to make a case for restoring rather than replacing things with special character. The cost and safety case that is. I get it, but still. Residents in the city of Tacoma, WA really dug their heels in to try and save the Murray Morgan bridge of the same vintage. They had a good deal of sentimental support in their court, as it carried the name of a wonderful local author and historian who died a few years ago. Still, no luck. Sad.
Well, hats off Manette, I'll miss your face.
