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.
