ST. LOUIS – The City of St. Louis is planning to spend $46 million on roadway improvements that aim to address speeding, reduce crashes, and offer safer routes for pedestrians.

The changes would affect around 30 miles of corridors and select intersections in the city.

Money for these projects will come from ARPA funding. The American Rescue Plan Act requires states and municipalities to have plans for all of their money by the end of this year or return it.

According to the city, corridor traffic safety enhancements are planned for the following locations…

Broadway (Cole St. to Chouteau Ave.)

Convention Plaza (4th St. to Broadway)

Goodfellow Blvd. (Delmar Blvd. to Halls Ferry Circle)

Grand Blvd. (Holly Hills Ave. to Hall St.)

Jefferson Ave. (Chippewa St. to Chouteau Ave.)

Kingshighway Blvd. (Gravois Ave. to Florissant Ave.)

Union Blvd. (Enright Ave. to Florissant Ave.)

Washington Ave. (3rd St. to 14th St.)

4th St. (Chouteau Ave. to Convention Plaza)

Improvement plans will be discussed at a public meeting Wednesday for Kingshighway between Gravois and West Florissant. Officials will unveil the plans and the public can make comments and ask questions.

That meeting will run from 4-7 p.m. at the Piper Palm House in Tower Grove Park. There will be another meeting for the Kingshighway corridor on May 23 at Wohl Center from 4-7 p.m.
