Workers climb Gateway Arch in search of stains
ST. LOUIS (AP) - Tourists, commuters and downtown office workers are enjoying an unusual view of the Gateway Arch Thursday as a group of workers climb the iconic landmark in search of stains.
Workers could be seen rappelling down the Arch in a repair project commissioned by the National Park Service.
The Arch remains open, but public access to portions of its surrounding grounds is limited to the south entrance.
Tram rides to the top of the Arch continue, but access to the viewing deck will be partially restricted.
