Local commuters are fed up over the Detroit-Superior bridge, which they say has been littered with human feces, a decaying bird and a knocked down lamp post for more than a month.

"This is unacceptable," said Paul Browning, a Lakewood resident who walks the bridge everyday to and from his job. "Go to another city. You see this? I don't."

"You just see the same thing everyday," said Kierra Dubose, a Cleveland resident who also walks the bridge everyday to and from her job.

The City of Cleveland is responsible for the maintenance and upkeep of the bridge. News 5 requested an interview but a spokesman said no one is available to talk.

"Where's my tax money?" said Browning. "I work downtown. I walk to save money."

"You figure they [city officials] always say they'll do this or do that but you never really see it happening," said Dubose.

In a follow-up email, the city spokesman said that crews removed the knocked down light pole once News 5 brought it to their attention. A new pole will be installed in the next two weeks.
