I was driving over the Skyway yesterday and was surprised at the condition of the paint on support cables. It's faded, chipped off and just plain crappy looking. It's been like this for a few years now and can't figure out why nothing's being done. This is one of our true Landmarks and is supposed to be a gateway to our area. I was kinda of embarrassed to say the least, since a had a couple of vistors with me. I know this is a state operated facility, yet I feel some of the city leaders of St.Pete should step up and make something happen here (on th state level).
Again, I'm not saying any particular county(or City) should be painting this bridge. I just feel some city or local leaders should use whatever political clout they have to lean on the state to get this done. I simply offered up St.Pete as downtown is one of the first thing we see when going over the bridge heading north. Hopefully, someone will get on the ball as this bridge should be a point of pride for the community.
