SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The Johnson County Board of Supervisors met Thursday to discuss the building plans for the Mehaffey Bridge Project.

The supervisors discussed two main options for the bridge, with the designs only varying slightly.

The first design included arches for aesthetic value, while the second went without the arches.  Both designs featured lookouts for pedestrians to view the Iowa River, a feature all the supervisors agreed on it.

After discussion, the supervisors approved putting the bridge on the agenda for the next meeting after unofficially deciding to go with the second design in order to save at least $350,000. Both designs include an equal weight limit and pedestrian paths.
