See the new Stan Musial Bridge

Join us for the grand opening of the new Stan Musial Interstate 70 bridge across the Father of Waters. The bridge is located just north of the ML King Bridge, which is just north of the Eads Bridge. 

Dress warmly and bring some water and a snack, this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!

Metro transit has arranged special bus services to take people from selected locations in the downtown area to the new bridge and back from 11:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. If possible, people are encouraged to take Metro transit to arrive downtown. To use the free bridge shuttles, park at any of the free Metro Park-Ride lots along the MetroLink system in Missouri and Illinois and take the train to the Convention Center MetroLink Station. Attendees can also take MetroBus to the Civic Center MetroLink Station and board an eastbound train to the Convention Center MetroLink Station. To ride MetroBus and MetroLink, attendees must have a valid fare. From the Convention Center Station, people can catch one of the free special bridge shuttles at:

•6th Street north of Washington (west side of street)

•Washington and 7th Street at the Metro Store (north side of street)

•9th Street between Washington Avenue and Convention Plaza (east side of street)

•9th Street and Cole Street (east side of street)

•11th Street and Cole Street (north side of street

    Would have gone, but it was too cold for me. I didn't even go to the dog show for the St. Louis Collie Club this weekend. And I'm a member.

      These are pictures I anticipate showing my grandkids someday after driving them over the bridge.

    Glad I was able to make it down there even though I didn't think I would.

    It was cold (and, I had been out since 06:00 for that 6K race), but it was well worth it!

    Nice to see everyone, however briefly. Would have hung around more were I not chasing my wife and son.

    I'm still going to try to make it but don't know if I'll make the 11:30 meetup time. I was downtown at 06:00 this morning to shoot the 6k run.....I'm still cold and am now warming up at home for a little while!

    February 8, 2014

  • Richard K.

    Very doubtful (as I am trying to get my family involved) that I will make the 11:30 meetup time, but hope to run into the group on the bridge.

    • Al A.

      That's fine. As you know we spread out quickly!

    Meetup time is 11:30 on 9th St. between Washington Ave and Convention Plaza. This is a short stretch that dead ends at the dome where the Rams play. This is a new experience so I don't know what to expect but it will be exciting. We'll ride the shuttle over to the bridge, compliments of Bi-State. I expect strong winds out over the span so dress accordingly. As long as MODOT is proceeding with the opening this MEETUP is ON.

    Thinking about attending....What time will everyone be meeting up? Hope the weather is friendly this weekend :)

      Pretty cool, Al. I especially liked the time lapse pictures of the new bridge being built.

    Not sure, yet, if I will make it because I am actually shooting the 6K run across the bridge. I get up very early for these runs, so I don't know if I'll be up to sticking around much past 10:00 AM, when the run is expected to be over. Don't know where I'll be shooting, but usually it's at the finish line which, in this case, I think is Tucker and Washington, although there is also a split at the 3k mark, which I think is near or on the bridge. Note that it's a 6K run (instead of the usual 5k) in honor of Stan the Man! So I might see everyone down there!

      We're more fun than any run! LOL. Hope we see you.

      If I can stay awake, and if I can stay warm for another hour and a half, I hope to hook up to have some fun!

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
