Manatee County, speed up Hamer Bridge construction

May 25, 2014 

This is in response to all the letters being written on how to fix the traffic flow on the Green Bridge.

When we moved to Ellenton 22 years ago the Green and Desoto bridges were adequate to handle the traffic going into Bradenton.

Over the years home builders found the area of Ellenton and Parrish ideal for building houses and they did.

Now instead of more houses, we need that Fort Hamer Bridge!

That project has been tossed around for years and now is when we need it, not five years down the line.

So Manatee County needs to slow the new housing developments and put more effort into having the bridge built.
