Nature of Firm

TRRA owns and operates the Merchants Bridge, the MacArthur Bridge, a rail switching facility in Madison, IL and several key rail routes in St. Louis, MO, Madison and the E. St. Louis, IL area.


In 1889, TRRA was created for the purpose of securing an efficient method of interchange of passenger and freight  traffic over the Mississippi River. The original railroads making up the TRRA were Missouri Pacific Railway Company, the St. Louis, Iron Mountain and Southern Railway Company, Wabash Railroad Company, the Ohio and Mississippi Railway Company, the Louisville and Nashville Railroad Company, and the Cleveland, Cincinnati, Chicago and St. Louis Railway Company. Numerous other railroads were subsequently admitted to the Association. Today, through mergers and acquisitions, there are five owners.
