My town recently spent thousands of dollars to make this covered bridge. I think the end price tag was over $100,000... and with so few residents, that means I paid about $250 of that.
That kind of makes me mad. I don't see this bridge adding $250 worth of value to my life. It's pretty, but I had to drive out of my way to see it, and I don't see myself ever using it. Worse... for those who walk in this area (it's a pedestrian bridge only), walking around takes about two minutes.
