• Alton Bridge
    The Clark Bridge, which opened in 1990, spans 4,260 feet across the Mississippi River at Alton, linking Illinois and Missouri. The bridge is named after William Clark who, along with Meriwether Lewis, in 1804 began their historic exploration of the Louisiana Purchase. The historic expedition began at a point on the Mississippi River near Wood River. This photo by photographer Scott Evers captures the bridge at sunset. http://www.scotteversphotography.net/
