I was just out on the Eisenbahn yesterday and snapped this picture of West Bend’s Bridge to Nowhere.
As the air begins to turn a little cooler and the leaves on the trees begin to fall, I was reminded that it is the middle of September and nothing has happened with this bridge. As a quick refresher, this bridge hasn’t been in use for a decade and the city was going to tear it down in January. A group of folks who want it as part of a refurbishment project for the West Bend Theater convinced the city to hold off on the demolition and put up a surety bond to that effect. The city agreed, but gave them a year to get something going with it. It has been 8 months and I haven’t seen any movement whatsoever on the project other than the group running it changed their name and makeup.
Well, it appears that something is happening. Here’s news from the Washington County Insider:
The West Bend Common Council will go into adjourn into closed session Monday night to discuss the bridge and the Downtown West Bend Theatre.
We’ll see what happens.
