New Bicycle Pedestrian Lane on Missouri River Bridge Finally Named - UPDATE: 20 Missouri Lawmakers Test New Pedestrian/Bicycle Attachment that crosses Missouri River in Jefferson City

Not all bridge namings need to stir up troubled political waters.
A week after the Missouri Senate was whipped into a frenzy over a proposal to name the new Mississippi River bridge after Illinois Congressman Jerry Costello, state officials came together amicably on Wednesday to dedicate another crossing.
Although this stretch is more path than span.
The new bicycle and pedestrian lane on the Missouri River bridge near the state Capitol has been named for Pat Jones, whose late husband, Ted Jones, was the managing partner of Edward Jones investments. (His father, Edward D. Jones, founded the St. Louis company.)
The lane, on the northbound side, will make it easier for bikers and hikers to travel between Jefferson City and the Katy Trail.
Costello's commitment to the Mississippi River bridge was called into question by state senators, but Jones' dedication to the Katy Trail is not in doubt.
Jones and her husband, who died in 1990, donated over $2 million to purchase the right-of-way space from the railroads that got the 225-mile trail started.
