Open House for I-44 Meramec River Pedestrian Bridge Project

Sponsored by the Cities of Kirkwood, Fenton and Sunset Hills, and Great Rivers Greenway District.

Kirkwood residents are invited to an Open House on August 20 on the I-44 Meramec River Pedestrian bridge.  This is an opportunity to give feedback during this early planning phase on conceptual plans for the proposed bike and pedestrian bridge and associated trail heads that will be part of the new I-44 bridge over the Meramec River, just west of I-270. 

The goal of the project is to build a connection for people walking and biking on the new Interstate 44 bridge over the Meramec River. The municipalities of Fenton, Kirkwood, and Sunset Hills in South St. Louis County, along with project partners Great Rivers Greenway and the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) invite neighbors to learn about the project and give their input.  The timeline for the project begins with a bidding process at the end of 2020. 

Interested residents can stop by anytime for light refreshments and to check out display boards, talk to staff, and complete a survey.  All display materials and feedback questions will be available online after the meeting and through September 5, for anyone unable to attend the event.

At this time concepts are being explored to guide the design of trail connections and amenities associated with the bridge. Public input and technical feasibility are important components of the concept development. This project has several goals:

  • Provide people with a safe and accessible way to cross the Meramec River while walking, running, or riding a bike.
  • Connect to the Meramec Greenway, parks, trails, businesses, neighborhoods, and other destinations on either side, including possible new trailheads with amenities such as restrooms, benches, and parking.
  • Allow people to connect to the Meramec River itself.  Inviting people to enjoy nature leads to ownership and opportunities to be good stewards of these natural resources for the health and long-term sustainability of our watershed and communities.
