Getting to the Arch Gets Easier for Pedestrian Visitors
Parking spaces being turned into a pedestrian walkway?? What??
That’s exactly what will be happening at the Gateway Arch Garage on Washington Avenue. Construction work is scheduled to begin on Tuesday, June 1, and be completed around June 25, right before the Fair St. Louis festivities. The pedestrian walkway will displace a row of Metro pool car and staff parking spaces to connect Washington Avenue and the Arch-Laclede’s Landing MetroLink Station with the garage elevator and stairs to the Arch grounds.
The pedestrian walkway will include an ADA ramp from Washington Avenue into the garage, as well as improved lighting and a steel fence. During construction, Arch visitors will use a temporary pedestrian path to the east of the construction.
Hopefully, it will make the pathway between the Landing and the Arch grounds more inviting and accessible for all.
