ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - Some say you're not a true St. Louisan until you've been to the top of the Gateway Arch. That service has been shut down since mid-March but is reopening on July 8. 

The Tram Ride to the Top reopens on Wednesday and so will the documentary movies and outdoor National Park Service walking tours.
