- Program Description
An extraordinary structure takes shape before viewers' eyes as NOVA documents the building of the acclaimed Clark Bridge across the Mississippi River at Alton, Illinois, just north of St. Louis. Hal Holbrook narrates this tale of a community -- beset by economic decline -- that sees a new bridge as a passport to prosperity, and of the engineers and workers who make that dream a reality. The resulting structure has already won numerous design awards and has been called "the bridge of the future."
