Be prepared....a major shift is coming.
The Missouri Department of Transportation will begin a shift in traffic patterns around downtown St. Louis on Friday, and it's all a part of the Park Over the Highway project.
Road crews will be installing signs and preparing for the traffic shift between 9 in the morning and 1 in the afternoon.  
Crews will close northbound Memorial Drive between Walnut and Pine Street and close southbound Memorial between Chestnut and Market Streets.
In addition, crews will reverse traffic on Memorial Drive in those locations, allowing traffic to come across Walnut.
This work is part of the CityArchRiver Over the Highway project which will join downtown with the Gateway Arch grounds.  
Work will soon begin on the construction of the bridge over I-44. During the construction for the CityArchRiver Park, the Gateway Arch remains open.

I-70 in downtown STL to close for weekend

   More work on the Park Over the Highway project will mean detours and delays for some drivers in downtown St. Louis this weekend.  

   Missouri transportation officials say Interstate 70 will be closed in the depressed section starting at 8:00 p.m. Friday.  All lanes will be blocked in both directions between Pine Street and the Poplar Street Bridge.  It's scheduled to reopen by 5 a.m. Monday.  

   Drivers will need to use I-64 or surface streets to get around the closure.

Arch grounds renovation may face delayed

   Almost before any work has begun, the renovation of the Gateway Arch grounds may have run into a four-month delay.  

   The $380 million plan was presented Wednesday to a National Park Service board that must approve the project.  The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the federal Development Advisory Board, refused to sign off on the plan because of what is essentially, a paperwork issue.  

   CityArchRiver 2015, the non-profit that's spearheading the renovation efforts refused to provide a series of agreements between it and the park service.  CityArchRiver leaders say that's because the park hasn't signed a new deal with Metro to run the Arch trams, and thus guarantee that tram fees will be used to pay for much needed repairs to the tram systems.  

   Those contracts are reportedly in the pipeline and could be signed as soon as Thursday.  But the Development Advisory Board doesn't meet again until March.

Month-long road closure starts Monday

   MoDOT will close Washington Avenue between Memorial Drive and Second Street after rush hour Monday morning.  Transportation officials say the road will be closed for a month.  

   It's part of the "Park Over the Highway" project that will put a lid over the I-70 depressed section and connect the Arch grounds with downtown St. Louis.  

   Crews will continue to work around the King Bridge, interstate ramps and surface streets in the area for the rest of the year as the CityArchRiver 2015 project progresses.

Federal, state, and city officials will be on hand this week for the groundbreaking ceremony for the first project of the CityArchRiver 2015 plan.

The 'Park over the Highway' project will feature a landscaped structure over I-70 that will improve the accessibility to the park for walkers. The park project is being funded through a combination of Federal and State dollars, as well as $10 million from the CityArchRiver 2015 Foundation.

CityArchRiver expects implementing the plan will create over 4,000 jobs.

     The group behind improvements to the Arch Grounds, CityArchRiver.org, has released a new video offering an idea of what the "Park Over the Highway" would look like in 2015. 





    On Wednesday,  MoDOT officials announced St. Louis based KCI Construction Company was awarded the "Park Over the Highway"contract to connect the Arch grounds with downtown St. Louis.

     Construction is expected to begin in August, and is a scheduled to be completed by July 2015. Construction will start near the Martin Luther King Bridge, then move to Walnut Street.
