Bridge Lights Dedicated to New London Man and Co-Worker

A special celebration was held Monday night on the Great River Bridge across the Mississippi at Burlington. The Burlington Lightscape Project celebrated the completed lighting of the Great River Bridge.  The lights on the south side of the bridge were dedicated to the memory of Pearson Franklin of New London and Andrew Whitcomb of Burnside, Illinois. The two Frank Millard and Company construction workers were killed when they were hit by a car while working on the bridge October 18, 2022.
