A Solution for Michigan Street Bridge Hits

How many times, over how many years, have large vehicles hit the Michigan Street bridge? And in all that time, none of the so-called “experts” have been able to come up with a way to keep it from happening?

Come on, this isn’t rocket science here. All that needs to be done is to install a bar or beam over the road about one block from either end of the bridge, preferably set one inch lower than the lowest point of the bridge itself. That way, vehicles that are too tall will hit the bar/beam instead of the bridge!

For added effect, a flashing light and/or siren could be mounted, just in case the driver is too dim witted to notice the screeching sound of the bar scraping the top of his/her vehicle.
