The webcam's view of Walnut Bridge, live midday Monday.
Two cameras aimed at the construction under the St. Louis Gateway Arch went live this month, webcasting up-to-the-minute views of downtown and the waterfront.

CityArchRiver 2015, the fundraising group for the Arch grounds expansion project, set up the cameras so people can see construction as it happens, scroll through previous work and create a time-lapse of the project. One camera is aimed at the riverfront, the other at Walnut Bridge.

Two more cameras will go live later this year, showing construction of the Park Over the Highway, the North Gateway Park and a high-resolution panorama of the entire Arch grounds project from the roof of the Hyatt Regency Hotel.

The CityArchRiver 2015 project will redesign and expand the Arch grounds, adding five miles of bike trails, new event spaces, children's play areas and an accessible waterfront. Voters approved the expansion in April 2013.

Lindsay, it is so cool that it is possible to watch things like construction in action. I have always been fascinated by construction and how things are built. I would really like to be able to watch some of the work done to expand that St. Louis Gateway Arch. I wonder where the cameras come from. Maybe if I do a little research I could find out more.
