An Illinois bridge has been chosen as one of ten finalists for America’s Transportation Awards, an annual contest by The American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials.  Of 73 projects submitted, the Stan Musial Veteran’s Memorial Bridge, designed by HNTB, was chosen to be a finalist.  Now ol’ Stan needs your help to push him to a win.

If you drive to Saint Louis, you may know the bridge simply as the Mississippi River Bridge.  It carries Interstate 70 over the Big Muddy.    You can vote for the bridge, and see its nine competitors, on this web site.
