Veteran's Bridge
St Louis

Work began on the Veteran's Memorial Bridge in 1948, and it opened on January 13, 1951. At the time, it was the largest cantilever type bridge over the Mississippi, and the sixth largest cantilever structure in the country. The mainline of US 66 used the bridge from 1955 to 1967. It was named in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King in 1968.
