    Wonder how many sides are going to argue over who gets the credit for the money raised? This time can we just pool the money and let it go to the contractor approved by the MDOT??

    Misleading. Plaques will not be allowed inside the bridge per I.C.R.C. MDOT will not approve the contractor, it will be an open bid process. Desite what this group has stated, Dan Vos Construction has NOT been hired to rebuild the bridge. Beware of misleading fundraisers. SMH…
