ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Hundreds of visitors were stranded at the top of the Gateway Arch while crews tried to determine why some doors at the top of the South leg wouldn’t close due to computer problems.

The National Park Service says it happened after noon Thursday.

The visitors were in the viewing area at the top of the monument when they were told the doors at the top of the south leg would not close.   They were stranded for less than an hour.

For their safety they were sent to the tram on the North leg.

    Put a lid on Arch 2015 promotring and spending, and attend to what appear to be more problems with the condition of the structure than are being reported.
    Maintenance problems dont fix themselves and time is the enemy.
