St. Louis, MO ( KTRS ) – Skateboarders have turned a concrete area beneath a St. Louis bridge into a skate park. But with that 78-year-old Kingshighway bridge now set to be torn down, the skateboarders are getting a city-authorized park.

The Post-Dispatch (http://bit.ly/1JjrmIe ) reports that they formed a nonprofit and began looking three years ago for a permanent place to skateboard.

A grand opening for the new skate park is set for June 21.

The old bridge is expected to close July 6 for demolition. A new span is planned to take its place as part of a $21 million project.

For now though, skateboarders have two parks that are two miles apart.
