Gateway Arch Tours. St.Louis Missouri. Music-Attack!Attack: song -Dr.Shavargro pt. 3
A short tour around the Gateway Arch in St. Louis, MO. We took the elevator right to the top to have a great view over the river and city then we visited the museum at the base. The Gateway Arch, also known as the Gateway to the West, is part of the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial in St. Louis, Missouri. Built as a monument to the westward expansion of the United States, it has become the city's iconic image. It was designed by architect Eero Saarinen and structural engineer Hannskarl Bandel in 1947. It is 630 feet (192 m) wide at its base and stands 630 feet (192 m) tall, making it the tallest monument in the United States, Construction started on February 12, 1963, and ended on October 28, 1965. It is the tallest habitable structure in Missouri. The monument opened to the public on July 10, 1967 We stopped off here during our three week tour of Route 66. I plan on putting up over a 100 short videos from this trip so please subscribe to my channel.

The Gateway Arch towers over the city of St. Louis, a monument to western expansion. Standing at 630 feet, this stainless steel structure is a marvel of modern engineering. This past May, all seven Steiner brothers made a road trip to visit the Arch Grounds. The Steiner Brothers are no strangers to hard work and innovation. The seven brothers grew up on the family farm east of Orrville, Ohio watching their father, Marvin Steiner, build custom farm equipment. Following in their father's footsteps, the Steiner brothers have been designing and manufacturing products for the turf industry for over 35 years. In 1998, they launched Ventrac, a center articulating compact tractor with over 30 professional grade attachments to chose from and the ability to operate on steep slopes. On this visit to the Arch Grounds, the Steiner's visited with the Gardener Supervisor, Jim Jacobs and his crew. The Gateway Arch uses three Ventrac 4000 series tractors to maintain their grounds. During mowing season, Jacobs and his grounds crew enjoy the beautiful cut and striping job provided by Ventrac and the ability to mow steep grades. In fact, their Standard Operating Procedures for mowing specifically states that the only mower authorized to mow around the ponds is a Ventrac. The Gateway Arch also uses their Ventrac in all other seasons of the year. Besides mowing, their Ventrac tractors also take care of their snow and leaf removal as well as aeration and sidewalk maintenance. At the Gateway ...

The cross-sections of its legs are equilateral triangles, narrowing from 54 feet (16 m) per side at the base to 17 feet (5.2 m) at the top. Each wall consists of a stainless steel skin covering a sandwich of two carbon steel walls with reinforced concrete in the middle from ground level to 300 feet (91 m), with carbon steel and rebar from 300 feet (91 m) to the peak. The interior of the Arch is hollow and contains a unique transport system leading to an observation deck at the top. The interior of the Arch also contains two emergency stairwells of 1076 steps each, in the event of a need to evacuate the Arch or if a problem develops with the tram system. The base of each leg at ground level had an engineering tolerance of one sixty-fourth of an inch (0.40 mm) or the two legs would not meet at the top. During construction, both legs were built up simultaneously. When the time came to connect both legs together at the apex, thermal expansion of the sunward facing south leg prevented it from aligning precisely with the north leg. This alignment problem was solved when the St. Louis Fire Department sprayed the south leg with water from firehoses until it had cooled to the point where it aligned with the north leg.
