ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – More than two centuries after their famous journey West, Lewis & Clark are on the move again.
The bronze statue officially known as “The Captains’ Return” is being moved from its current location beneath Eads Bridge later today.
The likeness of the famous explorers and their dog has spent a lot of time under water since it was dedicated eight years ago, and the elements have already started taking their toll.
So the statue will be cleaned up and then placed somewhere a little dryer—that final location has yet to be determined.
