CityArchRiver Continues to Make Progress on Arch Grounds

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – More attractions are getting ready to open to the public on the newly reconstructed grounds of the Gateway Arch.

They’ve replanted all of the trees that were eaten alive by the Emerald Ash Borer and reopened Leonor K. Sullivan along the riverfront.

Ryan McClure with CityArchRiver talks about what comes next.

“In the next few weeks, probably by the end of October, you should see many of the pathways opening on the Arch Grounds,” he says. “Specifically those on the northern end that will connect to Laclede’s Landing.”

McClure says all the pathways should be open by the end of the year, and then all of the landscaping to the north and south of the Arch will be open as of next spring.

Spring is when Kiener Plaza west of the Old Courthouse is expected to open back up to the public, as well.

McClure says the new museum and Visitor Center beneath the Arch is still on track to open about a year from now, though an exact date is not yet known.

    What we know about CityArchRiver redesign is that there is no close up parking, on will have to park at surface lots or stadium garage and all cost more than the old parking garage. If you are handicapped you will have to take a shuttle for even more money. When you get to the Arch it will cost to go up as it did before but the new museum will also cost (it use to be free). Then there is the crime issue, where thugs are always watching for the tourist to walk away from their cars and they break in to take anything of value so when you come back you have a real problem. You could take the Ghetto Link but it is full of crime too. Check out how many companies have moved from the landing because of all these issues. What a waste of tax payers dollars.
