Chain of Rocks Bridge, St Louis

The bridge was, for a time, the path used by Route 66 to cross over the Mississippi river.

It’s most notable feature is the 22-degree bend occurring at the middle.

The bridge now only carries walking and biking trails over the river although, in June 2003, Trailnet granted special permission to Hampton Inn's “Save-A-Landmark” Route 66 Caravan to cross the bridge.

The bridge was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2006.

  1. My family of 5 persons are planning to visit this bridge in 2015, where we are planning driving the historic route 66 as much as possibly. This page is very helpful in our planning.

About Driving Route 66

What started as a record of my personal Route 66 experience has grown into an active community of Route 66 veterans and newcomers alike. This website relies entirely on the experiences of its users so please feel free to recommend your own personal favourites.

Every Route 66 road trip is unique, and this site is in no way intended to be a definitive guide to the old road. However, I sincerely hope it offers a starting point to anyone planning their own Route 66 vacation.
