Both Media and Upper Providence Police sit at the bottom of this hill to enforce speed restrictions. It's a dangerous enough intersection, that they are there almost everyday. School buses with kids going to Media Elementary are exposed to this risk day-after-day, yet wouldn't have to be if the Third Street Bridge was open.
The Police, Fire Department, Emergency Medical Services and the RTM School District are all in favor of opening Third Street for the sake of safety, but Mayor Bob McMahon and Media Borough Council still can't get the job done after 18 years. What was once $1.4 million to fix this bridge, has now increased by millions due to lack of leadership.
