Saving the John Mack Bridge, just south of Pawnee on Broadway, in Wichita, Kansas

Lead to the creation, in 1993, of the
Historic Preservation Alliance
of Wichita and Sedgwick County

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.
