Dr. Martin Luther King Memorial Bridge

Update: See what lies under the Illinois approaches in this post from July 2019.

To commemorate the bridge’s closure for repairs in the fall of 2018, I thought I would photograph the Dr. Martin Luther King Memorial Bridge, which has the distinction of being the first bridge built at St. Louis strictly for automobile traffic? Do you have memories of its construction? It was originally the Veterans’ Bridge, which is now the name, shared with Stan Musial, of the newest interstate bridge in St. Louis.
