This sign is up on Pandora as you head towards the Johnson Street Bridge. I had not paid attention to it before but for some reason the wording hit me today as sounding rather odd. So how long is temporary?
I assume that until there is a new bridge this route will be the way for pedestrians and cyclists to cross the bridge. It does not seem temporary to me, it seems permanent.
When I think of temporary I think a few days or weeks, maybe a couple of months, not years. The wording makes me feel like someone is trying to pull off something, it feels vaguely like someone has been watching too many old episodes of Spin City.
