What's going to happen to the old bridge?
McDonald County will sign the paperwork to give overthe Historic Bridge to the Powell Historical Preservation So.The old bridge is already listed on the National Register. It is thefirst structure in the county to be listed.After the signing, the P.H.P.S. will start the rehab. of the old bridge. We plan to put on an extra steel runner halfway up from the bottom to ensure that a small child can not fall through. No other bridge is done this way, we want want to help ensure safty.Then we will start by replacing all of the wooden boards across the bridge. We also hope that people will want to purchase a board, and we will have their name engraved in it.
