New bridge not needed

April 8, 2014 

We used the new Stan Musial bridge recently. As you get to the Missouri side, you are in beautiful north St. Louis, notwhere we really want to be. Coming to Illinois you go through East St.Louis, same story.

We did not notice much of a difference on the PoplarStreet Bridge; same backup, maybe a few cars shorter. Everybody still wanted to go on Interstate 55 south, not Interstate 70 north.

Seems like another unnecessary construction project.
