Meeting Next Monday Regarding South City Connector

Next Monday evening, St. Louis Aldermen from the 16th, 23rd & 24th Wards are hosting an informational meeting about the proposed South County City Connector. the meeting will be held at Southwest Baptist Church, located at 6401 Scanlan Avenue in Lindenwood Park.

As you likely have heard, St. Louis County Department of Highways & Traffic (they've made it clear they are not a bike department) is proposing a 6-7 lane limited access highway that would dump a significant amount of St. Louis County traffic onto River Des Peres Boulevard in St. Louis City. This will have negative impacts to the adjacent park, greenway bike trail and nearby residents.

The City of Maplewood last month officially came out against the proposed highway. As a reminder, all Written comments regarding the Draft Environmental Impact Statement for the project must be postmarked or received by email or mail no later than Friday, July 19, 2013. Written comments should be submitted to: 

Mail: St. Louis County Department of Highways and Traffic Attention: South County Connector 121 S. Meramec Avenue Clayton, Missouri 63105
