MODOT – MISSISSIPPI RIVER BRIDGE
The Stan Musial Veterans Memorial Bridge was the first to be built in more than 40 years connecting downtown St. Louis and Southwestern Illinois. The four-lane, cable-stayed bridge has a main span of 1,500-foot and carries I-70 traffic across the Mississippi River.
The Mississippi River Bridge project created a new gateway between Illinois and Missouri, providing better connections to and through St. Louis. The project involved renovation of a landmark bridge structure, realignment / reconstruction of Interstate 70, and numerous local road projects on both sides of the river.
The $667 million project increased traffic capacity, improved system linkages, community access and travel times, and will enhance economic growth.
