Bismarck-Mandan Rail Bridge preservation group seeks state hearing

It is in the “public interest to provide for the preservation of historic sites, buildings, structures and antiquities of state and national significance for the inspiration, use and benefit of the people of the state of North Dakota” That’s the position of the attorney representing a grassroots citizen group setting out to save the historic rail bridge over the Missouri River.

Their goal is to convert it to pedestrian and bicycle use. And they’re seeking a hearing from state agencies regarding the permitting of the new bridge. If the story sounds familiar, it may be because Minot’s own version of this has been playing out over several years regarding the Anne Street Bridge.
