ACTIVE PROJECT SEGMENTS
MARKET STREET: Compton Ave to 20th
The segment from Compton Ave, at the campus of Harris-Stowe State University to 20th Street, at CITYPARK (the home of St. Louis CITY SC) is focused on a conceptual design of a public art project to remember, honor and celebrate the Mill Creek Valley neighborhood. This piece is being designed by artist Damon Davis with input from community and key stakeholders.
Learn more about this segment and how you can get involved.
The segment from Fairground Park south to the Grand MetroLink Station and east to NGA (National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency) is driven by community engagement. We’re focusing on taking stock of existing conditions and partners, engaging one-on-one with stakeholders and community leaders and planning for future engagement, both now and when we can connect in real life again. Design has begun, and part of this section was awarded a $15 million federal grant for construction beginning in 2025. Read the planning phase recap here.
The segment from the Central West End MetroLink Station east toward the Grand MetroLink Station will continue with planning and design. Progress within this segment will be paced to coordinate with partners like the City Foundry and the Armory District projects and align our timelines as much as possible to be good stewards of your investments. Part of this segment received a $4 million federal grant and is in design now.
Shown in blue, two partner connectors will be great ways for the project. The Tower Grove Connector (led by City of St. Louis and Greater St. Louis Inc) will go along Tower Grove Ave and Vandeventer Ave, eventually up Sarah St to connect to Brickline Greenway.
Brickline Greenway northern segment is awarded $15 million in construction funds from U.S. DoT.
RAISE discretionary grant program (Rebuilding American Infrastructure with Sustainability and Equity) selected this St. Louis project for funding.
