ST. LOUIS (AP) — President Barack Obama has signed legislation designating the new Interstate 70 bridge connecting St. Louis and southwestern Illinois over the Mississippi River as the "Stan Musial Veterans Memorial Bridge."
The name is a compromise between Missouri lawmakers who wanted to honor the late St. Louis Cardinals great and Illinois lawmakers who wanted to name the bridge in honor of military veterans.
Obama signed the measure Friday, two days after Governor Jay Nixon signed legislation dubbing Missouri's side of the bridge the "Stan Musial Memorial Bridge."
Musial died in January at age 92. He was a three-time MVP and seven-time batting champion who spent his 22-year career with the Cardinals. He also was a Navy veteran of World War II and a 2011 recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom.]]>
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri is naming its side of a new Mississippi River span the "Stan Musial Memorial Bridge" for the late St. Louis Cardinals great.
But the state might not have the exclusive naming rights. Federal legislation approved by Congress and awaiting action by President Barack Obama names it the "Stan Musial Veterans Memorial Bridge." That name represents a compromise between Missouri lawmakers who wanted to honor Musial and Illinois lawmakers who wanted to honor military veterans.
Governor Jay Nixon signed Missouri's legislation Wednesday. It also names part of a highway for construction worker Andy Gammon, who died while building the new Mississippi River bridge.
Missouri's legislation also names an existing St. Louis bridge for former Congressman William Clay, who won the first of 16 U.S. House terms in 1968.
Local political leaders are it calling an impressive display of bipartisan support and compromise. The U.S. House on Tuesday voted to name the new Interstate-70 bridge over the Mississippi River as the "Stan Musial Veterans Memorial Bridge."
Missouri lawmakers had wanted to name the span after the Cardinal's legend. Illinois lawmakers had wanted to name the bridge to honor veterans. Tuesday's 395-to-2 House vote would do both.
The measure now moves on the U.S. Senate.
All of the street, bridge and interstate improvements planned for downtown St. Louis are on track to be finished on time. That was the message from Missouri and Illinois transportation engineers when they briefed the East-West Gateway Council of Governments Wednesday.
High water on the Mississippi River has caused some delays for crews building the new River Bridge, but project officials say the work continues and they still expect to finish by early next year.
Some of the other projects planned for downtown St. Louis over the next two years include the park that will cap the I-70 depressed lanes, new ramps connecting I-70 and I-55 to the Poplar Street Bridge and a year-long resurfacing project on the MLK bridge.
