Champ Clark Bridge name change in the works?

Posted:
LOUISIANA, Mo. (WGEM) -

If a new bridge is built over the Mississippi River in Louisiana, Missouri, should it still be named the Champ Clark Bridge?

MoDOT is asking that question in a new online poll.

They've created a website (www.champclarkbridge.com) to keep the public informed on the progress of the project and to get ideas from the community.

Right now, MoDOT is in the environmental assessment phase to look at the possibility of replacing the 85-year-old bridge and where the new span would go.

A new bridge could cost up to $100 million.
