The city of Des Moines is holding an informational meeting Monday night about rebuilding the Grand Avenue bridge downtown.

The landmark bridge is falling apart. Des Moines leaders say it will be more cost effective to replace the bridge than to continue fixing it.

However they want the new bridge to keep some features of the current one — including the arches.

The public meeting will be held at City Hall from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
