Underside of the decaying Broadway bridge near 34th Street South, shot when it was closed temporarily in 2007The crumbling South Broadway bridge that arches over railroad tracks near 34th Street may be torn down.
City officials said Tuesday they hope to get state approval for a new steel arch bridge that would carry traffic over the tracks slightly west of the existing bridge.
It would cost an estimated $8.3 million and take more than a year to build.
It's just one of several options the city's consultants, MKEC Engineering Consultants Inc., looked into.
The arch concept would require Broadway to close for about two months — the shortest of all the options.
