  • A must-see for anyone exploring the Illinois section of old rt. 66. Hats off to the folks keeping this bridge open to the public.  more »

  • This is now a pedestrian bridge. You can't get to it from the Missouri side of the river. Park, and walk the bridge. You get a beautiful view of the river as well as Saint Louis in the distance. As an added bonus, there's a little Route 66 display about 1/2 across the bridge.
  • Was on it and I saw Isaac Hayes drive by in a sweet Caddy. He got capped by Adrianne Barbeau. I don't think he made it across.
  • Great walk over the bridge! It's recommended not to park on the Missouri side, however.
  • A wonderful place to ride your bike or walk across what was once a main artery for Route 66 going through St Louis to Illinois or vice versa. It took us about an hour to walk from Missouri to Illinois.
  • Amazing to walk or bike. Interesting old structure with great view over the river. Definitely worth the drive.
