EDITORIAL: Progress on the corridor has us ‘trending in the right direction’

It’s hard to believe that a staple of Macon’s roadways will soon disappear. While plans are not final for the Second Street Bridge crossing the Norfolk Southern Railway tracks, this dubious landmark, called the “Hump Bridge” is certainly going to change -- for the better. The undercarriages of cars and trucks will be safe again. Visitors to our fair city will no longer find themselves suddenly airborne. The 1850s-era bridge wasn’t designed for motorized travel and it’s hard to believe it was designed for any type of wagon or walking traffic.
