The Gazette covers City Hall, now a flood-damaged icon on May's Island in the Cedar River

Followers of the East Post Road bridge flap: Here’s how bridge might look

Here are images — 

 that the City Council looked at this week as it pushed the project ahead to replace the East Post Road bridge over Indian Creek.


The council broke 5-4 on keeping a sidewalk on the downstream side of the new bridge. It also will include a 14-foot trail on the upstream side.


There are formal council votes yet to come, so nothing is set in stone.


The images show the bridge now and renderings of what it might look like.


Both the trail and sidewalk are elevated six inches above the roadway to calm fears from citizens that the bridge one day will be converted to a four-lane structure.
