Is this a joke? It took 3 towns over 2 years to settle their differences and actually repair this pathetic little bridge and now some hack is having a ribbon cutting ceremony? This is an embarrassment.

Joe, be careful! Next they will want to name it after one of them! "Normal" people living in Massachusetts motto: "thank you sir, may I have another"!

Thank you Representative Jim Miceli. If it weren't for you, this bridge would still be closed.
