Organizations giving away chance to blow up old Champ Clark Bridge

You could be lucky enough to be one of a couple of people to press the button to blow up the old Champ Clark Bridge.

Two organizations, one on the Missouri side and one on the Illinois side of the bridge are selling 500 tickets each to give someone that chance.

The Pittsfield High School History Club will benefit from the raffle on the Illinois side while the Louisiana chamber of commerce is handling the raffle on the Missouri side.

The drawing will be held on October 15th.

MoDOT says the demolition of the bridge should take place later this month.
