Iowa - Illinois - Running for Office

To successfully win the Iowa Caucus a candidate needs to get groups to vote in support.  To successfully cross the Iowa - Illinois border, a single runner can take the Julien Dubuque Bridge as it crosses the Mississippi River, joining the cities of Dubuque, Iowa, and East Dubuque, Illinois. The bridge is safe enough but access to the pedestrian portion requires crossing 6 traffic flows (outbound for me!) or knowledge of a shortcut under the bridge to downtown sidewalks (inbound for me!)

East Dubuque, Illinois

The pedestrian section of a bridge as an afterthought?
