MADISON COUNTY, Iowa — Travelers in Madison County may see a very strange sight Tuesday – a bridge on the move.

The historic 120-foot Jurgensen Bridge is making a move to Cedar Lake in Winterset.

The bridge was built in 1910 and closed a century later when it suffered extensive damage during the floods of 2010. The bridge will become part of the bike trail system, providing a route over the Cedar Lake spillway.

The bridge should be in place by Thursday.
