Happy Birthday Gateway Arch!

Written by 

48 years ago today, the last section of the Gateway Arch was lifted into place. At 630 feet, the arch is America's tallest national monument and an icon of St. Louis.

 Local officials and civic leaders hope to celebrate the Gateway Arch's 50th birthday in 2015 by unveiling the CityArchRiver 2015 project that has local communters seeing construction zones along many streets surrounding the Arch, the landing, and many arterial roads in the area.
