Stan Musial Veterans Memorial Bridge
Quinn tells KMOX the $700 million dollar span is a great investment for both Illinois and Missouri.
Illinois and Missouri have announced new details for the public debut of the Stan Musial Veterans Memorial Bridge on Saturday, February 8.
Project Director Randy Hitt says everything from surface repairs to snow removal will be simplified.
Transportation officials will celebrate the completion of the bridge on February 8, 2014 and open it up for the traffic the next morning.
Knowing it will be a major disruption for commuters, I-DOT will penalize the contractor $2,500 for every 15 minutes the road remains closed past the deadline of 9:00 a.m. on September 23.
PRIDE St. Louis Executive Director Jim LaMantia says the only reason to celebrate a jobless figure of around 20 percent is that it was up to 35 percent during the Great Recession.
Linking the Missouri and Illinois sides of the new Stan Musial Veterans Memorial Bridge has taken longer than expected.
“We’re not going to have any speeches or anything like that but the last piece of structural steel is always the ceremonial piece and we’ll have some banners to commemorate”
The Stan Musial Veterans Bridge will hit another milestone on Friday when both the Illinois and Missouri sides of the bridge will be joined together in the middle.
Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn says the new Stan Musial Veterans Memorial Bridge will bring a strong economic impact for both Illinois and Missouri.
