SCS/SBs 176 & 192 - This act designates the new bridge on Interstate 70 crossing the Mississippi River between downtown St. Louis and southwestern Illinois as the "Stan Musial Memorial Bridge". The act requires the department of transportation to erect and maintain appropriate signs designating the Missouri portion of such bridge, with the costs for such designation to be paid for by private donation. This portion of the act is contingent upon the state of Illinois designating its portion of the bridge as the "Stan Musial Memorial Bridge" (Section 227.421).
This act modifies the current Mark Twain Highway designation set forth in Section 227.303. Under current law, the Mark Twain Highway designation encompasses all of Interstate 70 as contained in the city of St. Louis. Under this act, the Mark Twain Highway designation would run from the city's western city limits to mile marker 248, rather than the Illinois border.
In addition, this act designates a portion of Interstate 70, from mile marker 248 to the Illinois border, as the "Andy Gammon Memorial Highway" (Section 227.303). This portion of the act is identical to SB 286 (2013).
