The old roadside inn is looking good down in the Eureka area near the Meramec River compared to four years ago. Sadly, the bridge was condemned, its road bed removed. If you have interest in Route 66, consider donating to repair and reopen this bridge.

I am thankful that the powers that be had the foresight to not demolish the entire bridge, only the road deck – thus leaving the main structure to use at a later date, once funds become available. If a pedestrian/cycling deck were installed on top of that, there would be SO many options for connecting the two sides of the river. I believe Great Rivers Greenway has that bridge in their targets, but I don’t know when it’ll happen.
