SABULA, Iowa (KWQC) — The Sabula Railroad Bridge will be out of commission until officials can determine if it's safe after a towboat hit it late Thursday night, May 4, 2017. The Coast Guard says the waterway will also be closed until the bridge can be checked by divers.
Coast Guard officials say they received a notification at 11:45 p.m. of the towing vessel Dottie Strait colliding with the Sabula Railroad Bridge at mile marker 535 on the Upper Mississippi River, near Clinton, Iowa.
Officials say there were no reported injuries or pollution.

We have just uploaded selections of the Milwaukee Road (east) from our John F. Bjorklund Collection. The album includes this shot of a westbound Milwaukee Road freight train crossing drawbridge over the Mississippi River in Sabula, Iowa, on October 21, 1978.
