Saving the John Mack Bridge, just south of Pawnee on Broadway, in
Concerned citizens in the South Central area joined with those in
Historic Midtown to fight the proposed demolition of the second longest remaining Marsh
arch bridge in the United States. Citizens got it listed on the National Register of
Historic Places and gathered over 5,000 signatures on a petition to request the city
refurbish the bridge and build a second, non-obtrusive two-lane bridge next to it so
traffic flow could be improved.
