Built 1887, Demolished 2012
WOW! "Caught in the act."
Nice shot of Downtown Des Moines,the River and Bridge.
Big favorite and Like to this Photo!!
Its too bad they are tearing this down. I really liked this old bridge.
They can't use it for Bike or Pedestrian trail use?
It was to be used for that, but after the floods of 2008, the bridge became severely damaged. Two piers were in immediate danger of collapsing, and kids had fallen through the deck. Although I hate this demolition idea, it is probably the best route for safety. Otherwise, it is just a collapse waiting to happen.
Sorry to see it go, although for safety it is a best route.
