River des Peres Greenway: Broadway to Mississippi Greenway

Project Overview:

The goal of this project is to close the gap between the River des Peres and Mississippi Greenways near the River City Casino. When complete, it will not only link these two greenways but also the Gravois Greenway-creating nearly 24 connected miles to explore and enjoy.

Project Location:

This project will extend the River des Peres Greenway from its current endpoint at South Broadway to the Mississippi Greenway’s current endpoint on the northwest corner of the casino property. It will be built parallel to the north side of River City Casino Blvd.

Project Partners:

Great Rivers Greenway
City of St. Louis
Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District

Project Status

The final half mile—between South Broadway and the northwest corner of the River City Casino— has been on hold to allow for Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District (MSD) sewer line repairs and improvements, and to obtain clearance from Union Pacific Railroad (UPRR) to construct the greenway beneath the railroad bridge. After many delays due to flooding, MSD has completed their project. We are now waiting for a positive response from UPRR which will allow us to complete the greenway. Stay tuned for additional updates on this project!
