Dave Moore is back for our 30th episode. We're welcoming Steve Nawrocki & Bill Zwick to the podcast. These two men have been instrumental in designing, funding and planning the Gateway to the Southwest project.
You may have noticed one of the sculptures at Pueblo's north entrance at the Dillon Drive bridge. The two sculptures intend to welcome people to Pueblo, encourage drivers to stop in our town and not just drive through, while also paying homage to the history. Historically the border of the U.S. & Mexico ran along the Arkansas River, so Pueblo is indeed the Gateway to the southwest.
Dave chats with Steve & Bill about the accomplishments of the projects so far, how the pandemic set them back funding-wise and what you can do to help get the project completed.
Since it's tricky to observe the huge sculptures on the side of the interstate, there will be Gateway Replica Sculptures on the Historic Arkansas Riverwalk Project (HARP) in downtown Pueblo.
