There are in Argentium three bridges across the river that flows through the city, a main bridge and two smaller bridges. Normally, when a traffic incident causes a closure of the main bridge during rush hour, the two smaller bridges become congested with vehicular traffic. However, when the roadway on the main bridge was closed for two months for maintenance, the amount of vehicular traffic on the two smaller bridges during rush hour was no greater than usual.

Which of the following, if true, best explains this surprising situation?

    A. There are bridges just outside of Argentium city limits that motorists traveling to destinations within Argentium can use to cross the river without necessarily making long detours.

    B. When aware in advance of issues that may cause traffic congestion, many people in Argentium choose to use public transportation rather than private automobiles.

    C. Many residents of Argentium ride bicycles, using special bike lanes, and thus do not contribute to traffic congestion on roadways.

    D. The two smaller bridges located in Argentium were designed to handle much more vehicular traffic than usually passes over them, even during rush hour.

    E. During the period when the roadway on the main bridge was closed for maintenance, the pedestrian walkway on the main bridge remained open.

Sir,
It looks better if the modifier "a main bridge and two small bridges" is kept the right side of "three bridges" with using a "comma", doesn't it?
Thanks__
