NORA SPRINGS, Iowa – A $1.5 million footbridge project will link the southwest side of Nora Springs to the rest of the town.
On Monday, the city’s Parks and Recreation board met to look at proposed drawings and decide what materials they would want.
“This would address and issue in Nora Springs that has been going on for over a century,” says Emily Dystra, Nora Springs chairperson. “We want to open our community up and be able to walk from one side of town to the other. “Kids who live in the southwest side of town will have better access to schools and won’t have to walk along the highway.”
The project does still need to be approved as well as a bidding process for the job, but the board says they hope to break ground this spring.
