I want to grab a url like this one:
http://mydomain.com/12543/mystreetnumber-streetname.html
and 301 redirect it to
http://mydomain.com/A12543/mystreetnumber-streetname.html

I'm trying to figure out how to prepend the A to the  cgi.script_name

Here is what I have tried:

<cfset mlsidentifier = "A">
<cfset test = mlsidentifier & cgi.script_name>


but that just outputs:    
A/12543/mystreetnumber-streetname.html

where I need
A12543/mystreetnumber-streetname.html

Is it possible to prepend a character to the cgi.script_name?

Any help appreciated!
