Lincoln Logs: Bridge-- Main Street

Some new news about an old road.

1. BRIDGE-- A bridge in Wyoming that was on the original Lincoln Highway alignment is possibly going to be replaced. It is one of the oldest bridges along the Wyoming stretch of the road, having been built in 1921 and is near Fort Bridger on County Road 221.

Wyoming DOT says it is in extremely poor condition. Let's hope they replace it with something resembling the original and perhaps incorporate some parts of the original.

From Jan. 22nd Unita County Herald.

2. MAIN STREET-- Plans are being made to turn Lancaster, Pennsylvania's stretch of the Lincoln Highway into "Lancaster County's Main Street." They are looking to increase the number of tourist related business, landscape and decrease billboards.

From Jan. 22nd Lancasteronline.

Good to Hear the Second story. --RoadDog
