Last night, the Charles City Council received an update on the Charlie Western Trail Way bridge. It’s not good.
“We’re waiting for official inspection from bridge engineer but it’s not salvageable,” City Administrator Steve Diers told North Cedar Reports.
The city would be on the hook for the cost of demolition.
The bridge and the section of the river beneath it remain closed off to the general public.
The City Council also discussed the proposed joint law enforcement center with Floyd County. The council came to a consensus that the city is pulling out of the project leaving Floyd County to go forward on its own.
