News From Along Route 66, December 2016: Gasconade Bridge and Arizona Plates

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.
