We’ve heard many ideas to shake ice loose from the bridge, and while some of them might have some limited potential success, they also come with risks of damaging the structure. We’ve also heard some far more outlandish ideas: shooting it down (yes, with guns), using hair dryers attached to drones, or blasting the ice with tunes from Ted Nugent on an amplifier set to “11,” which we take as tongue-in-cheek suggestions. We’re willing to hear any and all ideas, but so far we’ve not found one that is safe and effective.
