Project to rehab historic St. Louis bridge
ST. LOUIS (AP) -- A project using $25 million in stimulus funds is under way to rehabilitate the historic 138-year-old Eads Bridge in St. Louis.
Missouri and Illinois officials were joined by Deputy Federal Transit Administrator Therese McMillan for a ceremony on Tuesday. Plans call for painting, replacement of support steel and repair of MetroLink light rail tracks.
The work is expected to create 300 jobs. The overall cost of the project is $36 million, with all but about $2 million of that coming from the federal government.
