I got the text alert. Then, off in the distance, I heard a chorus of "Hallelujahs!" The blue bridge--the Glover Cary Bridge, to be precise--will reopen this Friday. Our long local nightmare has ended. Okay, so maybe that's a bit too extreme a characterization, but I know folks who will be very happy to put a period on using the Natcher Bridge as a detour. And shrinking gasoline bills are always welcome.
