New Home Sought for Earhart Memorial Bridge

A new bridge over the Missouri River at Atchison is under construction and will replace the Amelia Earhart Memorial Bridge. But not only will the Memorial Bridge not be demolished, it is eligible for inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places. A new home for the bridge is now being sought. Kim Qualls is with the Kansas Department of Transportation.

For groups or other entities that might be interested, detailed information is available on the KDOT website, www-dot-k-s-d-o-t-dot-org. Sealed proposals for relocating the bridge will be accepted until 5 pm on Friday, April 1st.
