Want to buy a bridge, cheap?

November 26, 2007|From Times Wire Reports

The Kickapoo River bridge in Wisconsin is in rough shape but smooth-talking village officials are looking for a buyer with a buck to spare.

Village officials in Soldier's Grove fear that a bridge built in 1910, which hasn't carried traffic in 31 years, will collapse and they want to get rid of it fast.

So they're offering to sell it for a dollar.

They hope high scrap prices help attract a buyer.
