Areas on both sides of river back building new Nauvoo bridge
Deseret News 31Mar00 D6
By Stephen A. Martin: Deseret News correspondent

NAUVOO, ILLINOIS -- A group of eight local government and economic developers have met to discuss the possibility of building a bridge linking Iowa with Nauvoo, Ill. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is constructing a $30 million temple in Nauvoo and this has aided in peaking the interest of officials. Illinois officials have always been interested in a new bridge, however, until recently, officials in Iowa have not been similarily interested.

The project is still in the exploratory stage and there is speculation that at the soonest, a new bridge is at least a decade away.
