Thursday Arch Series

Arch Construction 2015-12-05 2

We have not seen much of the Arch in recent months. This is why. Most of the grounds are still quite torn up. This is the view from the west, looking from downtown, turned 180 degrees from the photo in the post of December 9. 

The entrances to the museum under the monument and the tram to the top used to be narrow, under the legs and facing toward the center. It will be completely rearranged, with a broad new entry some distance to the west and facing downtown. That's a really good idea. More photos when there is something to see.

I guess it will be a while until you can next look at the view from the top of the arch.

Ah, reason revealed!

It's hard for me to imagine this area so torn up. They really are doing a lot of work here.

Hopefully the finished work will be well worth the aggravation.

The arch is such an important icon for St. Louis that it is almost a given that the powers-that-be will do it right. They would be strung up if they messed up the most important scene in your region.
