MODOT is planning a public meeting on the CityArchRiver 2015 project. The open house-style meeting is this Tuesday April 10th, between 3 and 5 p.m., at St. Louis City Hall. MODOT engineers will be on hand to discuss several options to the park over the highway portions of the project.
It is all part of an initiative to make the city more livable and welcoming to visitors. The plans call for a second entrance to the arch grounds, one that will face downtown St. Louis, as well as a covering the Interstate-70 "depressed section" with a lid, allowing pedestrian traffic to more easily walk from the Arch grounds to the Old Courthouse and the rest of downtown.
