The Fred Hartman Bridge shoulders are a real mess with all sorts of debris from one end to the other on both sides.
It always gets that way before it is finally cleaned. I do not know which organization cleans the bridge, but it is most likely the state highway department.
I suggest the cities of Baytown and La Porte “adopt” the bridge and keep the shoulders clean routinely. Baytown could clean it one week and LaPorte the next week — or each clean it every two weeks.
Currently the beautiful bridge is a real eyesore when seen up close. I suggest you take a drive over the bridge and back to Baytown, and focus on all the junk that everyone including new visitors see.
Thank you in advance for fixing this problem.
Keep Baytown and La Porte beautiful!
