Watching videos, most players place them on hexside, interrupting units in adjacent hexes. Then came up with homemade solutions.

I clip generously corners off those counters. And place them as intended by the rules. Place them in vacant hex with the arrow pointing at the bridge.

As necessary during play, I move them around to a new vacant hex.

This works very well. Map looks clean, and you easily identify the bridge status.

FWIW I have found the homemade solution of small wooden colored cubes fit fairly nicely on the hexsides between the units in the adjacent hexes, and they make the bridges more noticeable. (I use red = destroyed bridge, green = allied bridge, black = German bridge.)

Yes, I use general purpose small colored cubes for the bridges and other functions in this game

I cut my blown bridge markers, not in half, but about 25%/75%.

The small blown bridge side fits nicely on the hex side, between units on both sides of the bridge.

The roadblock side is just a little smaller than the other pieces, but they never stack so works fine.

This may have hurt the resale value, but I will never sell this game.
