The photos above show the difference between two Columbia overpasses. The College Avenue overpass, right, will serve as an example for the Providence Road overpass replacement in 2010.
On the left, the waist-high side walls of the overpass on Providence Road between Park Avenue and East Worley and Rogers streets block views from the road below, making people feel uneasy when they have to cross it at night.
On the right, Patrick Dyer, of Kansas City, rides his bike across the overpass on College Avenue while Andrew Cave, from Cherokee Village, Ark., enjoys a cigarette on Friday. The overpass will be used as an example because of its wheelchair access and its visibility from the road below.

Douglas McBride, left, crosses Providence Road between Park Avenue and East Worley Street on Friday. He said he doesn't use the pedestrian overpass, which does not comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act requirements. "I'm lazy," he says. "I didn't want to climb up steps." On the right, pedestrians cross the College Avenue overpass on Friday. The overpass is easily visible from the road below, a fact that contributes to its overall safety.

Wintry conditions caused problems for communities in southeast Missouri. In Cape Girardeau, cars became stuck in plowed embankments, such as these two cars on William Street on Jan. 27. The plowed snow from main roads, like William Street, make it difficult to get onto smaller side streets.

Mike Klender, the Kansas City water supply division assistant manager for operations, stands by one of the city's auxiliary water intakes. The intakes are designed to suck water from lower river levels at a pumping station along the Missouri River in Kansas City. The gradual lowering of the river bed could eventually threaten billions of dollars in property development, the stability of levees and bridges and make boat travel more difficult by exposing navigation hazards.
