Abandoned for decades but not forgotten, it looks like a rehabilitation plan for the Iron Bridge may have some legs. On numerous levels this project is a no-brainer: It expands the network of the Centennial Trail, improves connectivity for bikes and pedestrians through East Central-Logan-University District, brings attention to a sorely neglected stretch of the river, etc.
Still one should never underestimate the ability of a few decent renderings to change
your perspective on a place. The rendering above and the one below show what a restored
bridge could look like. We've always been big fans of this stretch of our river, so we're
stoked at the idea of this thing eventually opening up for public use (gotta do something about that invasive spotted knapweed too).
