1290It has now become a rush to preserve the bridge in Eureka, Missouri along Route 66. The bridge is on the National Register of Historic Places, but unless $575,000 is raised, the Missouri Department of Transportation will be demolishing it.

According to the Columbia Missourian article, “Route 66 is part of the fabric of the country, and this bridge played a vital role in that,” said St. Louis County Historian Daniel Gonzales. “Now we could be tearing it down, which is a real crisis in my mind.”
