Not Rustic Any More

Highway view of the new Chouteau Bridge (taken in 2008)

You probably couldn't have gone 45 miles on hour on the old Chouteau Bridge. Or at least you shouldn't have. The new bridge, built in 2001, looks much more like a highway compared to the rural look of the old bridge.

This photo was taken in September 2008 from southbound Missouri 269, near its terminus at the bridge.
