St. Louis, March 2002
Dale, my boss/mentor, and I went to St. Louis in March of 2002 to
meet with our Joint Venture partner, Jacobs, and the Corps of Engineers
regarding our design of the Olmsted Dam. We spent about 3 days at
Jacob's downtown office, which was just a few minutes walk from both the
Gateway Arch and the stadium where the St.Louis Rams play. Our
hotel was the "St. Louis Athletic Club". It was quite
cold during our visit so I didn't do much sightseeing. However, I
did go up to the top of the arch and one night, hopped over the
construction fences and walked across the Eads Bridge, over the
Mississippi River into Illinois. At the time it was being repaired
and closed to traffic.
|Someone else took this great
picture of the arch. Thanks! Please don't sue me.
