Brickline Greenway Update

Based on community input, we translated the project’s mission, key principles and intended outcomes into a brand for the Brickline Greenway (while still being part of the overall Great Rivers Greenway network of greenways). Project progress continues:

  • Market Street from Harris Stowe State University to the St. Louis CITY SC team’s new stadium district is in design and includes a major art installation from St. Louis Artist Damon Davis to honor and celebrate the Mill Creek Valley neighborhood and tell the stories of the people who lived there before they were displaced and the neighborhood destroyed.
  • Improvements from Fairground Park south to the Grand MetroLink Station and east to the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency must be 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 engagement, both for now and when we can connect fully in real life again.
  • From the Cortex MetroLink Station east toward the Grand MetroLink Station, planning and design progress continues in coordination with partners like City Foundry STL and
    the Armory District.

Conservation Highlights

Conservation is an essential part of the work that we do throughout the St. Louis region.

To that end, here are just a few of our conservation highlights from the last year!

  • We’re restoring 13 acres of prairie and woodland adjacent to Gravois Creek near the Mysun Charitable Foundation Trailhead on Gravois Greenway.
  • Together with St. Louis County Parks and with support from the Great Rivers Greenway Foundation, we’re returning 36 acres along the St. Vincent Greenway in St. Vincent County Park to a native woodland, prairie and savanna. Twenty-four acres of invasive species have been removed to date.
  • We’ve planted 800 willow stakes along the Meramec River in Lower Meramec Park to stabilize the banks and reduce erosion. We’re also working to reforest 10 acres of floodplain; replanting will begin in fall 2021 with a goal of 600 native trees on site by 2023.
  • Greenway users, pollinators, birds and wildlife are reaping the benefits of our ongoing conservation project at the site of a former sod farm along the Dardenne Greenway: Bluebird Meadow. The 34-acre native wildflower meadow is now a thriving prairie and natural floodplain for Dardenne Creek. It’s our pleasure to repay those pollinators, constantly working hard for our ecosystem!

Submit your comments about Brickline Greenway for federal funding consideration

Through September 24, 2020, you have the chance to submit your comments about projects that seek federal funding through East-West Gateway’s Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP). TAP funds can be used for projects such as bicycle and pedestrian facilities, Safe Routes to School infrastructure or programming, community improvement and environmental mitigation activities, and preservation of historic transportation facilities.

We’ve tried to make it as easy as possible – use the form below to send your feedback on this greenway project. We also encourage you to look through their full list (there are several of our partners seeking funding on greenway projects) and give any feedback you have on any or all of the opportunities. It only takes a moment and is a great way to make sure your voice is heard. East-West Gateway staff will evaluate the feedback, applications and make recommendations in January 2021 to the Transportation Planning Committee.

#GatewayArchStepChallenge

Our friends over at the Gateway Arch Park Foundation have unveiled the #GatewayArchStepChallenge. There are 1,076 steps inside of each leg of our beloved Gateway Arch. We challenge you to ‘climb’ up and down the Arch as fast as you can to complete a total of 2,152 steps, which is just over one mile. Here are ten spots throughout the network of greenways that would let you climb up and down the Arch on a greenway!

Get out there before May 31st (even just around your neighborhood) and post on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #GatewayArchStepChallenge to be part of the action – you’ll be entered to win a t-shirt and medal!
