The municipalities of Fenton, Kirkwood and Sunset Hills along with project partners Great Rivers Greenway and the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) hosted two community Open Houses (August 20 and October 15) to share details about the I-44/Meramec River crossing and gather input during this early planning phase (will bid for construction at the end of 2020).
If you were unable to attend the most recent Open House on October 15, you can still share your feedback via the online survey below. This survey will remain open until October 25, 2019.
Information from the August 20 and October 15 Open Houses has been posted on the MoDot Project Website. This includes Open House boards with comments, summary of public input, online survey results, revised plans, and more. Visit the MoDot Project Website here

This connection for people walking and biking on the new Interstate 44 bridge over the Meramec River has several goals:
- Provide people with a safe and accessible way to cross the Meramec River while walking, running or riding a bike.
- Connect to the Meramec Greenway, parks, trails, businesses, neighborhoods and other destinations on either side, including possible new trailheads with amenities like a restroom, benches and parking.
- Allow people to connect to the Meramec River itself; inviting people to enjoy nature leads to ownership and opportunities to be good stewards of these natural resources for the health and long-term sustainability of our watershed and communities.
