A bridge that would span Elm Creek along South Washington Avenue took another step closer to reality Monday.

Iola City Council members approved the hiring of Schwab Eaton as engineers to design a single truss, steel span pedestrian bridge.

Meanwhile, Thrive Allen County — which already obtained grant funding on the city’s behalf to pay the engineering costs — will continue to seek out other grants to pay for the $256,000 span.
