ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – A big step toward the renovation of the Arch grounds is set to begin.

A $13 million contract has been awarded to McCarthy Castle of St. Louis to start work in mid or late September.

“This is significant because this is the first project that will go to construction on the National Park grounds,” says Ryan McClure, spokesman for City Arch River Foundation.

McClure says the work will include replacing the top soil, the Ash trees and other landscape improvements like renovation of the reflecting ponds.

One of the most significant projects will be a new pathway from the Arch to the Riverfront so pedestrians won’t have to take the grand stairs.
