Officials Working On Bridge Agreement Near Decatur
Posted: 27 November, 2012
DECATUR, Neb. (AP) - Officials have been working on an agreement to take over a bridge that links Decatur and northwest Iowa.
The bridge carries Nebraska Highway 51 traffic east and Iowa Highway 175 west over the Missouri River. Bridge manager Clark Beck says rising maintenance bills and costly repairs have taken a toll on the bridge commission’s bottom line. Nebraska and Iowa officials say the agreement is still being finished and that no date has been set for the ownership transfer.
