The area populace is happy that a new bridge is on schedule for Highway 47 over the Missouri River at Washington. But it’s going to be somewhat of a “plain Jane” structure because what many people consider regular enhancements will be missing — unless funding can be found somewhere.

Decorative railing for the east side will be missing unless additional money rears a pleasing head. The special city bridge committee learned last week that the additional cost for decorative railing on the east side would be about $260,000, according to the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT). The west side will have decorative railing. That’s where the pedestrian walkway will be. It also is the side facing the Washington riverfront so people, and/or boaters on that side, will have the pleasing decorative look.
