Forty Files: Highway 40 Photo Documentary, Vol. 8


"This project is moving along great, and that's because of the Labor Union and all the organized trades that have all played their part."

Wait a second! That's the radio ad for the labor union! I've been brainwashed. Could it be because the radio spot runs every ten minutes during Cardinals games!?

But hey, I got to hand it to someone. The highway is moving along rapidly. What was a dirt ravine for months and months (photos here) suddenly looks like an interstate.

In this photo from yesterday in Richmond Heights, you can see that crews have broadened the road quite a bit in the last week and added an off ramp at the Big Bend Bridge.

Could we have lane-dividers installed by next week? Stay tuned to the "Forty Files" to find out. In the meantime, continue on to see a photo of the project from last week.
