Options through South County have been eliminated. Public input was a deciding factor. No public meetings were held in St. Louis City.
The idea is to bring a grade-separated, freeway-like structure from I-44 in Shrewsbury and connect it to an urban boulevard at River Des Peres.
The plan is similar to the highway to boulevard concept proposed by City to River. The goal of the City to River effort is to help reconnect the area between the riverfront and downtown.
The connector concept has legs in South City but has been a difficult sell downtown.
