Dangerous Bridge - Keep Your Children Away

Mill Brook Bridge at Schwab Mill looking from BikePath
Over by the Old Schwab Mill the bridge that crosses the Mill Brook was recently redone and the "guard rails" are two artistic "hoops" in a nod to the woodwork done at the Schwab Mill.

Unfortunately, these rails are useless for preventing a toddler from falling into the brook or in stopping a vehicle from going down the embankment on either side.

This bridge and unsafe rails are within sight of the bikepath.  Look at the attached pictures.  Anyone who falls into the currently raging Mill Brook would be swept away into the underground tunnel for 1/4 of a mile.

Beware, keep your children away from this bridge!

posting picture here is not the same as informing the town. Why are you, as a town meeting member, trying to expose the town to unlimited liability, instead of informing the town that something needs to be fixed?

The only thing that needs to be fixed is to remove the town whiner from TM. He is giving Arlington a bad name. Attacking people on the cemetery commission. Next at the hockey rink. Now he wants to throw our children off this bridge. God save us all.
