Clark Bridge, Alton, IL

The Clark Bridge links Highways 367 and 67 in Missouri to Alton, Illinois. The cable-stayed bridge is a spectacular engineering achievement that carries four lanes of traffic and two bike lanes across a span of over 4000 feet above the Mississippi River. To my eye it is a sketch-worthy work of art as well.

  1. Oh, this looks similar to our new bridge in KC, except it's a single support...
