Removal of the Bridge had been planned As part of the flood control project and an army Engineer representative has stated Here that the project will 60 percent effective As Long As the Bridge remains in place. Reason is that the entire Bridge is below the Crown of the levee. At the South end the Bridge is six feet below the levee.

Of the total claims relative to removal of the Bridge $438,660 have been filed by South Hutchinson property owners $111,500 by South main business men and $241,000 by the Reno county county commission has filed the damage claim Over the removal of the Bridge despite the fact that Early in the project it was expected that the Bridge would be replaced by the county at one time a county commissioner made an unofficial but pub lie statement that the Bridge would be replaced by the county. At a hearing on May 8, 1940, the City attorney based on information he had at that time stated that the main Street Bridge was to be removed but would be replaced by the county. Although most of the damage claims now pending result from the expected removal of the Bridge both the City s flood control attorneys and the commission in its finding of damages decided that no one has a vested interest in a Bridge location., Eldridge Lovelace City plan Nung consultant made the state ment Here in a hearing concerning location of the Bridge the fact that a Highway is in one place or a Bridge is in one place does not mean that highways or Bridges should always be there. That would mean that our present pattern of Highway routes is forever Hutchinson flood control attorneys have pointed out that Al though present damage claims May be settled new claims can be expected if another Bridge is constructed at the present Loca Tion. A the attorneys in a letter to the commission made this statement the construction of a new main Street Bridge at a higher level and with longer approaches would in All probability result in certain damages to property owners because of the change in Grade in front of some business thirty nine damage claims involving the total project remain on file in District court and 15 of these Are connected with removal of the Bridge.
