May 2 Black Hawk Bridge program at Meehan Memorial Lansing Public Library to focus on history and environmental research

Research on the environment and history surrounding the Iowa Department of Transportation’s (DOT) proposed project for the Black Hawk Bridge at Lansing will be the topic of a presentation being held at the Meehan Memorial Lansing Public Library Thursday, May 2 at 5:30 p.m. The library is located at 515 Main Street in Lansing and can be reached at 563-538-4693.

Brennan Dolan, Cultural Resource Project Manager for Districts 1 & 2 for the Iowa DOT, will lead the discussion, which is free of charge and open to the public. He will continue discussions about historical and archaeological aspects of the proposed Black Hawk Bridge project at Lansing.

Earlier discussions with the Lansing Historical Working Group have focused on the National Historic Preservation Act, the process that the state and federal agencies are responsible for following, and what accounts for historical mitigation. The May 2 presentation will focus specifically on some of the results of the historical surveys and what rehabilitation options have been considered for the bridge. Dolan will share highlights from the architectural/historical studies as well as the rehabilitation report. Interested individuals are encouraged to come and listen to the presentation and participate in the discussion.
