Waverly council votes for pedestrian-only bridge replacement
Sep. 13, 2017
WAVERLY, Iowa (AP) — The Waverly City Council in northeast Iowa has decided the replacement for a historic bridge will be designed only for pedestrians — no cars or trucks.
The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reports that the council voted 4-3 Monday for one of the 18 pedestrian-only options for crossing the Cedar River. The new bridge's estimated cost: nearly $1.4 million.
The 100-year-old structure it will replace is known as the "green bridge" for the color of its metal. It's been closed since February 2015, after inspectors found corrosion on vital parts.
