Residents of the region, especially in the communities of Kirkwood, Fenton and Sunset Hills, are invited to an open house about the project 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 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 during this early planning phase (will bid for construction at the end of 2020). People can stop by anytime for light refreshments and to check out display boards, talk to staff and fill out a survey.

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 like a restroom, 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.
