What is a farmer going to do? Build a bridge with hay bales?

I cannot believe that something as RICH as ND goes to something as BROKE as the US Government to fix their own repairs. Pathetic!

Skip the engineering--get a couple of farmers from the area and they could have both bridges up and running within the week. I think the national guard builds bridges--the Victory bridge only connects to the east west walking path--not downtown Minot-Minot needs decent road to Depot and the walking path and the other bridge--very unsightly at this time.It is obviously a very low priority to city at this time-to bad

Going to use federal tax dollars to "fix" a bridge that then still can't be used? Brilliant!! Then hope to find funding in a state that has a $2,000,000 surplus? Am I the only one that thinks this is stupid?

100 years ago when we needed something built we used foreign laborers or the people would have never accomplished what they did. Somehow we have priced ourselves out and away from progress... of course the opposite of progress is congress!!

Don't fix the bridges. The bulk of the city could use the extra walk to lose a bit of the bulk of the city...if ya know what I mean.
