Overpasses To Be Fixed
Last week, Channel 5 posted a copy of the MoDOT Request for Bids for the emergency retrofitting of numerous overpasses in the St. Louis area after the partial collapse of the sidewalk on the north side of the Delor Street bridge over I-55.
But to get to the juicy part -- the actual list of bridges -- you have to scroll to page 33 and 34 of the PDF document.
So here's the list in text format by street carried, re-sorted by route number, and sorted by distance away from downtown St. Louis.
Grand Blvd. (two structures -- one northbound, one southbound)
Rock Hill Rd.
Gravois Ave./S. Tucker Blvd. (east of the I-44 split)
Gravois Ave./Russell Blvd. (south of the I-44 split)
Arsenal St. (two structures -- one eastbound, one westbound)
Delor St. (well, yeah)
Holly Hills Ave. (already also has temporary solution)
Loughborough Ave. (two structures -- one eastbound, one westbound)
Main St., Festus MO
Interstate 64 (U.S. 40)
As it happens, most of these structures are scheduled for demolition and replacement within the next five years anyway!
Kingshighway Blvd. (two structures -- one northbound, one southbound)
Hampton Ave./Concourse Dr. (two structures -- one northbound, one southbound)
Claytonia Terr. (underpass)
Laclede Station Rd. (underpass)
Most of the older overpasses in North St. Louis City have already been replaced, but closer to downtown and in North County you'll still find the early 1960s bridges.
N. 9th St./Howard St.
St. Louis Ave.
Fee Fee Rd.
St. Charles Rock Rd. (two structures -- one eastbound, one westbound)
I'm surprised there are still older structures on 270, but a couple remain.
Old Halls Ferry Rd. (North County)
Dougherty Ferry Rd. (West County)
Market St. over I-64 westbound on ramp from Pine St. (22nd St. Parkway area)
Kingshighway Blvd. over Clayton Ave. in Forest Park (two structures -- one northbound, one southbound)
Olive Blvd. (MO 340) over River des Peres in University City
