The Placentia lift bridge was out of commission and government officials were trying to get it fixed Monday, after a mechanical failure left it hanging at an angle.

Mr Bandell makes a very good point. the detour signs were very confusing especially for people going to Argentia. surely for the sake of tourists, at least, things could have been explained better. Note to Mr. Power, even though it wasn't his problem, the bad road condition could have been made better by the use of a grader and the dust could have been kept in check by something as simple as dust suppression ( a water truck) . the company working on the new bridge often has a water truck on site. think of the tourists mr.McGrath and maybe do a better job and explain the detour signs.
