The arch span section of the U.S. 59 Amelia Earhart Bridge in Atchison that connects the north side of the arch was placed on June 13. The south side will be connected on June 15. The bridge connects Kansas and Missouri over the Missouri River. This work can be seen on the AE Bridge Project webcam at: www.ksdot.org/aebridge
3rd Street - Looking northeast from north side of Third, just east of Main. Shows salt barrels, horse-drawn wagons.June, 1868 - KC cast a grim image before snaring the prize (Hannibal Bridge). The town also had fewer people than Leavenworth or St. Joseph, and it was barely keeping pace with Atchison, KS. All 4 cities wanted that first span over the Missouri. Yet this city was second to none in salesmanship, a talent probably born of desperation.
