St. Louis Avenue Overpass Re-Opens

The St. Louis Avenue overpass spanning Interstate 70 is open once again after many months of re-construction which made it challenging to get into Old North from the east.  On Friday, representatives from the Missouri Dept. of Transportation, East-West Gateway Council of Governments, the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Dept., and Fred Weber Construction Co., along with staffers from the offices of Mayor Slay, Congressman Clay, Senator McCaskill, and Senator Bond participated in a ceremonial ribbon-cutting in the middle of the new St. Louis Avenue overpass.  The new bridge, complete with ornamental railings and light fixtures and sidewalks protected by concrete barriers, crosses over Interstate 70 between 10th and 11th Streets.  The overpass is the primary entry point into Old North for residents and visitors who exit westbound I-70 at the Madison exit (which actually feeds into N. 10th Street up to St. Louis Avenue).

The aerial image below is from the website for the new Mississippi River Bridge project, with a yellow oval at the overpass location.
