Residents of a northern Beirut suburb slammed officials Thursday over their apparent inaction in replacing a highway bridge that was dismantled three years ago after some officials deemed it not structurally sound.The bridge was dismantled before alternative plans for it were proposed, compelling many of the town's residents to hold weekly protests.Traffic started to become unbearable for residents in the neighboring towns of Antelias and Jdeideh, which are used by commuters as an alternate route to Beirut, as there is no direct exit to the highway from Jal al-Dib to the city center.
