New Madison County bridge to cost more due to tariffs on steel

Posted: Updated:

Construction of the next Cedar Bridge in Winterset could begin later this month.

The famous bridge in Madison County was destroyed by an arson fire, which was set by three teenagers last year.

A contract has been approved to build a new one; it'll cost roughly $719,000.

The cost is about $100,000 more due to international tariffs. The steel beams needed to construct the new bridge are now more expensive.
