Bruns Bridge Destroyed by Floodwaters

Franklin County officials have confirmed the historic Bruns Bridge outside St. Clair has been washed away by rising flood water on the Meramec River at about 12:30 p.m. Monday.

This photo was taken of the bridge about 10:30 a.m Monday morning just before Mill Hill Road was closed. 

First District Commissioner Tim Brinker says the old metal bridge collided with the new bridge about 100 yard downstream and it is unknown how much damage was caused.
