Bison Bridge Foundation asks for support during I-80 bridge study meeting
Wednesday, the study team will host a 4th public meeting about where a new bridge will be built.
A couple of years ago, Founder and President of Living Lands and Waters, Chad Pregracke, came up with the big idea to save the existing I-80 bridge as a state or national park. A small herd of bison would live near the Mississippi bridge, and travel over the river using the Iowa-bound side. The Illinois side would be used for bike lanes and other amenities.
Pregracke says Wednesday's I-80 bridge study meeting is a chance for Bison Bridge supporters to -- in his words -- "be vocal and let them know we want it."
