MoDOT has chosen a company to build the pedestrian lid over I-70 downtown. The Park Over the Highway project has been awarded to KCI Construction Company, who put in a winning bid of $26.4 million. It was the lowest of six bids submitted for the project, which will 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.

Phase 2 of Arch grounds re-do finds funding

The next phase of the planned improvements to the Arch grounds is set to get underway this summer.

Crews had already planned to begin construction of the "lid" over I-70.

Now, the rebuild of Leonor K. Sullivan Boulevard, which runs along the riverfront at the base of the Arch steps, will also start this year. The road will be elevated and redesigned to include bike paths and pedestrian walkways.

Funding had already been in place for the $47 million park that will cap the highway. Newly found savings from that project will help fund the other.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that engineers have determined that the concrete walls of the "depressed section" of I-70 don’t need to be replaced, as originally thought. So the $11-million cost savings on that project will fund the Leonor K. Sullivan rebuild.
