ST. LOUIS (KMOV) – After years of construction, Merchants Bridge reopened Thursday.

The Terminal Railroad Association of St. Louis hosted a grand reopening to celebrate the completion of the $222 million project to replace the bridge that links Missouri and Illinois. There was almost a decade of planning and advocacy and four years of construction put into the project, which doubles the bridge’s capacity.

Merchants Bridge is located just north of the McKinley Bridge.
