For years I’ve called MacArthur Bridge in St. Louis – the roller coaster. To me it looks and at times feels exactly like that. While longer and normally a bit slower. I prefer leaving St Louis using Merchants Bridge. Not as high up in air and on bridge over water for less time.
The MacArthur Bridge is featured in an Amtrak commercial. I often joke it looks airbrushed – do to it not looking as old and rusty as it is.
The Terminal Railroad Association of St. Louis (TRRA) announced it has been awarded a Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) $7.1 million grant to replace and modernize its Broadway Street truss in St. Louis
