3 Years of Work Begins on St. Louis’ Eads Bridge

ST. LOUIS (AP) — St. Louis-area commuters who use the Eads Bridge may want to consider alternatives for the next three years.

KSDK-TV reports that crews began rehabilitation work for the support structure of the 138-year-old bridge on Monday, and the project is expected to be finished by the fall of 2015.

During the work, one lane of traffic will be open in each direction. Drivers are urged to allow for delays or consider the other bridges that cross the Mississippi River at St. Louis.
