Construction to extend the Mississippi Greenway from its current endpoint on the River City Casino Property and connect with the River des Peres Greenway remains on hold. The final half mile—between South Broadway and the northwest corner of the River City Casino—to connect the River des Peres and Mississippi Greenways 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!
When complete, there will be a continuous corridor from Francis Slay Park (Intersection of Canterbury & Ellendale) in the City of St. Louis all the way to Jefferson Barracks County Park in St. Louis County!
