Bridge Pier Memorial Rendering
Pictured above is a rendering of the southern bridge pier as a memorial to the current Missouri River bridge, which is scheduled to be replaced. The proposed memorial, which also includes benches and landscaping, as well as a place for an informational plaque, was brought up by an engineer during the design phase for the new bridge. It is not a final plan, but for visualization purposes. The pier is located north of the railroad tracks and south of the riverfront trail. It is about 60 feet from the trail. A decision on whether or not to save the pier is expected in February.
