Public meeting to be held on City-Arch-River Project
Members of the public will have another chance to weigh in on one of the most controversial parts of the City-Arch-River 2015 project - what to do about the portion of Interstate 70 that runs through downtown.
The Missouri Department of Transportation will hold a public meeting on its plans for the depressed section of the interstate at St. Louis City Hall on Tuesday.
U.S. Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood and Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar await their turn to talk about the federal grant for the CityArchRiver intitiative at the Old Courthouse in St. Louis on Wendesday.
The renovation of the Gateway Arch grounds is being called a “magnificent project” by two presidential cabinet members.
Interior Secretary Ken Salazar and Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood were in St. Louis Wednesday to celebrate a new $20 million federal grant for the project. The grant will help pay for a new “pedestrian lid” over Interstate 70 so people can move more easily between the Arch and downtown St. Louis.
