Meeting tonight and tomorrow evening for open discussion, for those interested in this long-awaited, long-needed bridge.
The New Mississippi River Bridge Projects

Mayor Francis G. Slay - St. Louis Will Get New Mississippi River Bridge (http://stlouis.missouri.org/citygov/newsgram/volumes/volume50/New-Bridge.htm - broken link)

And some history:
New Mississippi River Bridge toll endorsed - St. Louis Business Journal:
Hanson Insight Newsletter - May 2002 (http://www.hanson-inc.com/insight/0502/story1.htm - broken link)
Governors Blunt and Blagojevich Sign Partnership to Build New Mississippi River Bridge

With the recent seismic activities, hopefully that will remind those engineering and constructing this project to be thoughtful even more so of these forces.

However, the firm [and main architect] behind this design is world-famous - should be great. Here be one of his many past [and another award-winning] designs:
The Leonard P. Zakim Bunker Hill Bridge [I've driven over this, it is amazing ]

Default Downtown Firm Leading Wind Power

It's not an article from a newspaper, it's from a blog.
Quote:
Downtown Firm Leading Wind Power Revolution

With backing from Deere & Co. and a recent $150 million cash infusion from Irish renewable energy company NTR plc, Tom Carnahan’s Wind Capital Group is poised to become a major player in wind energy development in North America. And best of all, it’s based in downtown St. Louis at 1010 Market Street.

Wind Capital Group currently operates three wind farms in Missouri and has ambitious plans to develop additional wind farm projects in eight states across the Midwest and beyond. The firm recently made news as one of its wind farms helped Rock Port, Missouri become the first city in the country capable of meeting 100 percent of its electricity demand from wind power.

That's fantastic. I think we all know wind won't solve all of our problems, but it's a great start. Green companies will be doing well for themselves in the next decade and I'd love to see St. Louis' economy get in on some of that action!

How neat! Exciting that we beat out some other major cities for it too. There's really been this push in recent years to make science fun for adults too, which is so important. Scientists keep wondering why no one supports them while laypeople keep wondering why the hell gas is so expensive. If we realize how intrinsically linked those two are, we'll all be better off!
