Costello, Holland honored with artwork for river bridge efforts

holland costelloTwo community leaders instrumental in the new Stan Musial Veterans Memorial Bridge were recently honored with artwork for their efforts. In addition to the naming of the Illinois approach as the U.S. Congressman Jerry F. Costello Expressway, the former congressman, left, and contractor Bruce Holland, right, were honored by Leadership Council Southwestern Illinois with black and white artwork of the bridge during a special reception. For many years, the need for a new Mississippi River bridge topped the Leadership Council’s agenda. Costello pushed for the funding, while Holland, president of Holland Construction Services Inc., led the Leadership Council’s Transportation Committee, both on the bridge project and other infrastructure projects. When Holland learned that the bridge was not going to be able to be lighted due to funding constraints, he went to work raising the funds for the lighting.
