Efforts to save the Route 66 Bridge over the Gasconade River are nearing the end.
According to reports, MoDot recently withdrew bids for demolition of the nearly 90-year-old structure, however a 2nd meeting to discuss its future is now on the schedule for this month.
The Route 66 Association had been trying to save the structure since it’s closure in 2014 due to structural issues, however that has also fallen flat due to costs.
Officials with the Lebanon Park board say they’re also in talks with the association to see about taking a section of the bridge and relocating it to Boswell Park or the Route 66 History museum.
