KODIAK, Alaska (AP) - Kodiak residents are wondering what happened to their version of Paris love locks.

Lovers who visit bridges in Paris and other cities write their names on padlocks, attach them to bridge fences and throw the keys into the water to symbolize eternal love.

The Kodiak Daily Mirror (https://bit.ly/1fGeedY) reports a few dozen couples did the same on the Fred Zharoff (ZAR’-awf) Memorial Bridge connecting the city to Near Island but the locks disappeared last week.

An Alaska Department of Transportation spokeswoman in December said the locks technically are considered vandalism but removing them was low on the department priority list.

Spokesman Rob Greene says state workers didn’t rid the bridge of locks and wouldn’t it unless ordered to. He says city public works officials also deny removing the locks.
