The Saint Louis Zoo is getting a serious makeover.  Members of the zoo's governing board voted Thursday on an expansion plan that includes both the existing location and the new site on Oakland Ave, which is where Forest Park Hospital used to be.  

Among the new additions are a zoo-themed restaurant and hotel, a gondola, a bridge over I-64, and bigger animal habitats.  The expansion is expected to take 20-to-30 years to complete.
