Clean Bridge Club

For Lovers of the Hague Pedestrian Bridge

The Hague pedestrian bridge is a tranquil neighborhood gem. Members of the Clean Bridge Club are dedicated to keeping it free of the blights of litter and locks.

Members remove such things from the bridge as they can (the laws of the Commonwealth of Virginia give any user of public ways in Virginia the right to remove such things). Members report the things they cannot remove to the City of Norfolk for removal — and then they wait and wait.

Some members specialize in spotting visual blight on the bridge. Others specialize in removing it.

It's easy to join. Just ask any member. All it takes is a love of the bridge and a vigilant eye for anything that defaces it.


FIRST RULE of Clean Bridge Club: Never talk about "love locks." That insidious euphemism lends undeserved legitimacy and sympathy to anyone who would thoughtlessly deface a public bridge with padlocks.


Never forget what was...
