Over the course of the next year, St. Louis Public Radio plans to address the issue of the St. Louis region's aging infrastructure.With the 250th anniversary of the city coming up in 2014, we will look at the importance of the area's rivers, highway system, mass transit system and the infrastructure (sewers, bridges, utilities, etc.) that keeps the region's economic engine running.Even though the series focuses on transportation and infrastructure, it's about a whole lot more than going from point A to point B. It's about all the little connections that happen in between, from economics to politics to the environment and more.The series will include in-depth stories and interviews by members of the STLPR newsroom, "St. Louis on the Air" discussions, special events, commentaries and web-exclusive content.

The Stan Musial Veterans Memorial Bridge over the Mississippi River is slated to open early next year.

As part of St. Louis Public Radio's series of reports on the region's aging infrastructure called "How We Move," Julie Bierach spoke with Jerry Blair with the East-West Gateway Council about how the $667 million bridge will impact travel in the St. Louis region.

She began by asking him when they started planning for a new bridge.
