Bridge Question Defeated

Posted on 03 November 2010 by KWBG

BOONE, Iowa—Boone County voters overwhelmingly opposed a proposed to sell up to $6-million in bonds to remove and reconstruct the Wagon Wheel Bridge west of Boone, over the Des Moines River. The bridge sustained extensive structural damage last March when it was hit by a tree during the spring flood. A second flood caused the bridge to shift and since then, the Boone County Supervisors have closed it to traffic. Earlier this summer, residents submitted a petition with about 600-signatures opposing the closure. The Supervisors then called for the vote. 70-percent of the votes cast were opposed to the project.
