Open for bids this coming winter, construction planned for next summer.
1.2 million simoleons.
You're gonna need one of those amphibious bikes. Bridge has been down for 3 days now.
...and yes, I bet it will be a MOB. The old bridge was 255 feet long. (45.6716 Smoot)
While not being bravest man, I would still cross this bridge with my bike
Better an MOB than a UCEB
I hope it's not replaced with a MOB.
We've had some spring flooding in the past few years, but no significant flooding on the cedar this spring that I've heard of.
Here's a link to the mason city Globe Gazette article. It's not behind a paywall for me.
Hasn't the Cedar River flooded several times in the last few years?
Sorry, can't read the article without a subscription.
What a shame...
Sadly, this bridge is failing as we speak: http://www.charlescitypress.com/site/uncategorized/2017/04/1...
