New Town Bridge

My town has a rather rubbish river layout - it wiggles round a lot and means you have to go a long way round to cross it! The town gate and Nook's are close, but separated by water and you have to walk a long way down then back up again.

Not a problem, I thought, we get a new bridge at some point right? So when we do I'll put it at the top of town, nicely spaced from the otehr two crossings, the perfect location! So when Pelly suggests to me the locations of the new bridge, which are all impractical, I was a little annoyed. Two of her suggested spots were right next door to existing bridges. The only remotely useful one was right down on the coast, which will allow a slightly easier sweep of the shoreline when sea-fishing.

Has anyone else found this? I guess there must be a geographical reason why the top of town was unsuitable for a bridge, but I was so looking forward to having one there! And after all I've done for this little village so far! :P

my bridge options sucked too. Just one more thing that drives me crazy about this game!

Well here's some experience that might make things look better for you:
Mine sucked too, and all were RIGHT beside the other bridges on the map, and none of it made sense. I had sighed and just picked one.

Ends up it was the best decision I ever made. The size of the map made it look closer than it actually was, and I use the new bridge more often than the older two. Objects on the map are farther apart than they seem!

With the way things are made, there are preset acres that are randomized each time you start a town. Some acres are not compatible with bridges (specifically, the ones near the ponds and waterfalls).

I was annoyed with my new bridge placement, too. Basically, all it did was add a third bridge to my island and ... meh.

I've heard more then a few people say their bridges are getting placed next to each other. I haven't gotten any new ones yet but when I do I can't even imagine where they would go. I have nowhere for them, even next to the bridges I already have.

It can take a while - check your notice board for a post about the bridge, and Tortimer should be around to collect votes from villagers as to the bridge location. It can take a week from making the donation for the thing to actually be built if I remember! :)
