Bridge closed during EPA cleanup, 1985

In this September 1985 photo of the east end of the bridge, the road (US 66) has been closed by the EPA for the cleanup of dioxin in Times Beach, at the other end of the bridge. "Weight Limit 60 Tons" can still be seen at the extreme right. The white trailer in the center is the temporary EPA office. The "West Galley Centre Dining and Cocktails" sign is for the restaurant which today houses the US 66 State Park Visitor Center.

May 23, 1932

May 23, 1932 - The bridge carrying the new Route 66 over the Meramec River at Times Beach was completed. After the cleanup of the dioxin contaminated site of Times Beach, it served as the entrance to Route 66 State Park. The bridge was closed due to deterioration on October 29, 2009. Through a major donation from Stupp Brothers Incorporated, the bridge still stands. But millions more are needed for restoration.

Deck view

This bridge is located on a high-speed stretch of North Lindbergh Boulevard, accessible via U-turn ramps on either side. MoDOT removed the stone balustrades that once graced this bridge during the 1977 rehabilitation, and replaced them with ordinary concrete and steel guardrails which now makes it rather mundane-looking. But at least they left intact the stone-cladded arch span (see third photo). Two Mile Creek drains into Deer Creek.

Following a train derailment caused by a severe thunderstorm late Saturday night, June 25th, 2011, I returned to see if the bridge sustained any damage. The catwalk on the east face is now gone, presumably from movements of heavy equipment being used to make track repairs.

Old bridge in Gravois Creek

As I was photographing the northern end of the Green Park Industrial Trestle, I found this abandoned railroad bridge. The Union Pacific Railroad abandoned the right-of-way (resulting in Grant's Trail you see in the background) through this area, and I believe this old bridge portion was a service spur used by Union Pacific to service the local businesses that used to be here.
