MacArthur Bridge

MacArthur Bridge, in Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - view at night

The MacArthur Bridge, crossing the Mississippi River, in downtown Saint Louis. Originally called the Municipal Bridge, and now named after General Douglas MacArthur, this crossing opened to automobiles in 1917, and now only serves railroad traffic on its lower deck.

This photo was taken at night, but is artificially bright due to long camera exposure time. The lights on the bridge are for river boat navigation.
