Burlington could soon have a better idea of what to do with Cascade Bridge. The bridge, which is about 115 years old, has been closed to vehicular traffic for about 4 years.
The city was ready to spend several million dollars to tear it down and build a new one. It even had received a $1-million grant to help cover the cost.
The state stepped in, though, to make sure Burlington considered restoring the structure.
The city council has agreed to have Shuck-Britson, Inc. out of Des Moines study the bridge.
