Missouri's first highway tunnel is coming to St. Louis. Karyn Dest reports from Jefferson City.
The state Highway Comission gave the go-ahead for the fourteen-hundred foot tunnel project on Wednesday. The tunnel will replace a stretch of Lindbergh Boulevard under a proposed future expansion of Lambert Airport.
MoDot's St. Louis Engineer Ed Hassinger says so far, there's no set construction date for the tunnel.
MoDOT says the tunnel will cost $14 million. That money will be taken from federal funds earmarked for the airport's expansion.
