Iowa Bridge Destroyed by Flood Nearly Ready

WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) Officials say a nature trail bridge in northeast Iowa destroyed by a 2008 flood is almost ready for the public.

The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reports the project to rebuild the 700-foot McFarlane Bridge is almost complete. The bridge helps connect the 52-mile Cedar Valley Nature Trail, which runs from Evansdale to Hiawatha near Cedar Rapids.

Black Hawk County officials held a hearing this week to update the public on the project's status. A grand opening ceremony for the bridge is tentatively scheduled for early May.

Project organizers say the repair work took so long because county and state officials needed to secure funding.

A former railroad bridge in Evansdale also was destroyed by the flood, but it reopened in July 2011.
