KSDK reported:

Have you ever been frustrated with the traffic on the Daniel Boone Bridge? Well, MoDOT is offering a chance to take out your frustration for the last time.

The bridge going over the Missouri River is set for demolition in February, and MoDOT is using it as a chance to raise money for the Boys & Girls Clubs of St. Charles County and Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater St. Louis. You can win a chance to push the button by buying raffle tickets or placing a bid in the auction.
