Stan Musial Veterans Memorial Bridge finalist for Transportation Award

 

Stan Musial Veterans Memorial Bridge

The Stan Musial Veterans Memorial Bridge in St. Louis has been selected as one of 10 national finalists in the 2014 America’s Transportation Awards competition. A panel of national transportation experts picked the Mississippi River bridge project from 73 projects representing 36 states.

The project was a joint effort by the Missouri and Illinois Department of Transportation. The project was the first major interstate river bridge to be constructed in the greater St. Louis area in over 50 years. Its purpose was to reduce congestion and improve safety by removing I-70 from the Poplar Street Bridge into St. Louis. The project symbolizes Illinois’ and Missouri’s commitment to innovation and partnership. The bridge opened to traffic in February.

The project now competes for two top prizes. The first is the Grand Prize, selected by a panel of judges. The second, the People’s Choice Award will be decided through online voting. Voting began Monday, September 8 and continues through Friday, October 24 at www.americastransportationawards.org. On the ballot, the Stan Musial Veterans Memorial Bridge is listed as MO/IL: Mississippi River Bridge. Those interested are welcome to vote up to 10 times per day for their favorite projects.
