The Sioux City Council will ait another month to vote on a proposed $59,000 consulting agreement for design and engineering services concerning a pedestrian bridge to South Sioux City. The bridge would span roughly 1,000 feet to South Sioux City.
It could cost $10 million or more, and it would begin at Chris Larsen Park Road. The bridge would accommodate two-way shared use and serve as a landmark for Sioux City's Missouri Riverfront, drawing visitors off Interstate 29.
