Just to clarify the City of Springfield has set up a website regarding the rehabilitation of the footbridge.
They are requesting public feedback regarding the project.
At several public meetings held within the past two months overall support was overwhelming for rehabilitation.
Alternative funding sources are currently being investigated and pursued.
Wasted my time trying to visit this. Found it Closed and totally fenced off. Great river engineering hired to evaluate it. Of course they say it's costly to rehab because they have zero rehab experience. This bridge is Located in Missouri. Almost certain to be demolished.
