A Stop Sign Above The Flood Waters Of The Mississippi River At St. Louis

June 23, 2008

With the Mississippi River flooding, parts of Laclede's Landing on the St. Louis riverfront are under water. The two bridges in this shot are the M.L. King Bridge, which connects the states of Missouri and Illinois. The bridge in the foreground is the Terminal Railroad's high-line bridge that carries the Merchants Subdivision above the riverfront. The image was captured at the intersection of Laclede's Landing Blvd. and Leonor K. Sullivan Blvd.

  1. Yikes. That was a bad one. Love the selective color use.

  2. Thanks, Shelly Gunderson. Yeah, I think the flooding outside of the core metro area was much worse. The flood walls on the riverfront and along the north and south sides of downtown kept the river from flooding too badly.
