Cabinet members discuss plans for Arch project

ST. LOUIS (AP) -- More details on plans to upgrade the grounds of the Gateway Arch are expected to be unveiled next month.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Tom Bradley, superintendent of the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial that features the St. Louis monument, made those comments Wednesday during a news conference that featured two Cabinet members -- Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood and Interior Secretary Ken Salazar.
The Arch celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2015 and plans call for spending nearly $600 million to reshape the Arch grounds. Last week, a $20 million grant was announced that will fund some of the construction for a pedestrian walkway on Interstate 70 at the Arch site.
