Merge[edit]

I know the Tridge is famous and all but the Midland article is so small we could merge it in there and add some extra padding to a already sparse article. And just before you assume I lived in Midland for 18 years. So I've been on the Tridge. Whispering 19:05, 20 June 2006 (UTC)

  • In some respect, the tridge is mostly about Midland. But, the Tridge is also a relatively unique architectural object - in which, I believe, is notable enough for its own article. --Mrmiscellanious 21:01, 20 June 2006 (UTC)

"Other Tri-bridges/Y-bridges around the world"[edit]

This section has no business in this article except as padding. That content should be in the article about three-legged bridges, not here. It's functioning as a "See also" section, yet we have one of those below the References (wrong spot for it per MOS:LAYOUT, btw). I would split all of that content out into an article about the concept and get it out of there since it's not about the subject of the article, which is The Tridge.

References[edit]

We don't need the duplication between the "Endnotes" (a non-standard section name, btw) and the "References". If all of the content on other bridges is removed, that gets rid of the "Footnotes". The "Endnotes" are the references, so the "References" section can be erased, and the header reused for the Endnotes. Imzadi 1979  22:15, 5 December 2011 (UTC)

Lead[edit]

I am assuming that tridge comes from tri-bridge. Do we want to make this more explicit? Chris857 (talk) 01:52, 6 December 2011 (UTC)

That's great, but got a source that says so? If not, we can't add it even though we both assume the same thing. Imzadi 1979  02:03, 6 December 2011 (UTC)
Actually, here is one from the Detroit Free Press. You haven't lived here until ... You trudge over the Tridge. "That's Tri as in three and idge as in bridge -- as in a three-way bridge." (Edit) Amusingly, it's only from yesterday. Chris857 (talk) 02:17, 6 December 2011 (UTC)
