While we all want it to go, to be replaced by a new and safer structure, we’d like to preserve the memories embedded in our minds of that which is old. The Highway 47 Bridge Enhancement Committee is looking for ideas that would make the new bridge over the Missouri River at Washington unique and which would preserve the memories of the 1930s structure that will be removed.

First of all, the design should be different than the new bridge at Hermann over the same river. That design is all right but there’s nothing unique about it. New bridges are sleek appearing but somewhat monotonous. The old bridge at Washington has a strength appearance, much like the people on both sides of the river. While not totally unique, it has that muscular impact in viewing it and driving over it.
