Tuesday night in the Hamilton Community Center 150+ concerned citizens came to find out more about the Hwy 136 Bridge Approach project. There were IDOT officials, engineers, and Hamilton Mayor Bocephus Casey answering questions to all who asked. The 3 options presented were mapped out and compared on a chart as well as a map of the 1993 flood and a slideshow of subsequent floods since. Community members were asked to share their thoughts and chose an approach that they thought would be best.
