Stan Musial Veterans Memorial Bridge Opens


By WSIL Manager

ST. LOUIS, MO -- There was a big celebration in St. Louis Saturday, as Governor Quinn and other lawmakers officially opened a new four-lane bridge. The nearly $700 million construction will connect Missouri and Illinois. It's also been dubbed the Stan Musial Veterans Memorial Bridge, honoring veterans and the late baseball hall-of-famer. 

Earlier in the day, the bridge was open to community members for a 5K walk and run. It will be open to vehicle traffic on Sunday.
