Wheeling Mayor Glenn Elliott sent a formal letter to the Division of Highways stating why he thinks there are other solutions opposed to closing the Wheeling Suspension Bridge.

He proposed six ideas for those design solutions, including tolling, weigh stations, soft restraints, enforcement cameras, limitation to cars only, and a spacing regulation.

Elliott said his main concern is getting it open before the upcoming I-70 bridge work project starts in February.
