Designer of Collapsed Florida Bridge Also Involved in Clark Bridge

March 16, 2018 - 7:00 am

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - The designer of a foot bridge in Florida that collapsed and killed six people has a connection to the Metro-East.


FIGG Bridge Group has won awards for its design of the Clark Bridge that carries Route 67 over the Mississippi at Alton. IDOT says there's no cause for concern about the structural integrity of the Clark Bridge, due to the tragedy at Florida International University.

It was last inspected two years ago, and is due for another this June.

The last inspection produced no notable findings, IDOT says.
