Greenway Alerts: Old Chain of Rocks Bridge and Busch Greenway Pedestrian Bridge Temporarily Closed for Repairs

We will be temporarily closing two bridges this winter: the pedestrian boardwalk in the Busch Greenway near Duckett Creek and the Old Chain of Rocks Bridge. Here is what you need to know before you go:

Pedestrian Boardwalk in Busch Greenway
The boardwalk in the Busch Greenway between the Duckett Creek trail head and KATY Trail will be closed to all visitors for four to six weeks beginning February 5. Contractors will be replacing the entire deck and support beams. You will be unable to enter or exit the Katy Trail via the Busch Greenway during this time. Please plan an alternate route.

Old Chain of Rocks Bridge
The Old Chain of Rocks Bridge will be temporarily closed to all visitors March 12-May 5 (date extended to May 5 from April 6) so we can make repairs to the concrete deck and expansion joints.  This work is necessary to maintain the historic structure and increase its load rating. As an alternate route, you can use the bicycle and pedestrian path on the McKinley Bridge to travel across the Mississippi River.

We appreciate everyone’s patience as we maintain your investment in the greenways! Please keep in mind that all work is weather dependent. Check our website and Facebook page for updates.
