My Little Man & I walked across the old Route 66 Chain Of Rocks Bridge yesterday. It's a very cool experience. I've done it several times since it opened to the public in 2000. The city of Madison repaired the bridge with state funds. It sits on Chouteau Island on the Mississippi River. The bridge has a history. A few deaths and murders in the 80s & 90s. The bridge was also filmed in the ending of Escape From New York. Actually majority of the movie was filmed in East St. Louis & St. Louis. Fun Fact.... John Carpenter bought the bridge from the city of Madison for $1 to use it in his film then be sold it back to them for a $1. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chain_of_Rocks_Bridge These are my pictures from yesterday... : I hate to post anything personal but its the only picture I took of the bridge and this is at the Illinois-Missouri state line. No names but this is my Dad & Son.
