Subzero Conditions Don’t Stop the "Stan Span" from Getting an Accessible Ramp

101 Mobility St. Louis installed a ramp on the Stan Musial Veterans Memorial Bridge for the Opening Ceremony.

March 04, 2014 // Franchising.com // St. Louis, MO – Inclement weather did not stop 101 Mobility St. Louis owner Brad Kohlbrecher and his team from installing a 1,100 square foot aluminum wheelchair ramp on the newly opened Stan Musial Veterans Memorial Bridge. The multi-million dollar bridge traverses the Mississippi River to connect St. Clair County to the city of St. Louis. The opening of the "Stan Span" was celebrated with a 5K run and cycling road race.

101 Mobility St. Louis was called upon to install a rented ramp to ensure the event was fully accessible. 101 Mobility St. Louis and joint venture Massman Construction, Traylor Brothers, and Alberici Corporation worked in subzero conditions to ensure the bridge and ramp were ready for the much anticipated ribbon cutting ceremony. Kohlbrecher’s team certainly proved no job is too big or too small. "We were excited to do it and really happy to get it done. My wife even helped," he said. "At one point, the wind was blowing so hard that it threw a 24 foot ramp straight up into the air!"

It was definitely one of the windiest installs for 101 Mobility St. Louis but in the end it was well worth the effort. The opening ceremonies went off without a hitch and the ramp was taken down over the weekend to make way for the now fully operational four traffic lanes between St. Louis and Metro East.
