The debate began Wednesday when FOX 4's Kathy Quinn went live from the bridge to let drivers know that the construction will soon be complete the bridge will be open to drivers beginning Friday. When the bridge reopens, I-670 will also reopen to traffic.

But when Kathy mentioned Grand Boulevard, immediate confusion erupted because road signs in the area say, "Grand Ave."

A spokesperson for MoDOT says within their system the bridge is referred to as the "Grand Avenue Bridge."
