DECEMBER 16-- Continuing with options for the Gasconade River Bridge.
** Demolish old bridge but build one in the same style (truss-style bridge) Cost: $5.51 million.
** Build a totally new bridge between the current one and the I-44 bridge. Cost: $4.12 million.
** New bridge on the other side of I-44. Cost: $5.82. This would cause a 6-mile detour for Route 66 drivers.
Personally, I like the refurbish the current bridge for cars and small trucks.
