Archaeologist visits Iowa bridge after discovery

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Des Moines officials say an archaeologist is visiting the construction site of a city bridge to determine if there’s archaeological significance there.

The Des Moines Register reports (http://dmreg.co/1cyzvKJ ) the archaeologist is working Tuesday from the site of the Grand Avenue bridge over Walnut Creek.

City officials say they made a discovery Monday that could have archaeological significance, though additional information has not been released. They don’t know if the find will impact the project’s schedule.

The bridge has been closed since March and officials are working toward getting it open to traffic at the end of September.
