The city of St. Louis plans to close a section of Kingshighway Boulevard between Shaw Avenue and Southwest/Vandeventer Avenues on Monday, July 6 for about two years to accommodate the reconstruction of a 75-year-old bridge.

For the entire duration of the closure, the #95 Kingshighway will be rerouted around the bridge reconstruction via Chouteau Avenue, Tower Grove Avenue and Magnolia Avenue. In addition, the #14 Botanical Garden will be rerouted via Northrup Avenue to provide access to McRee Avenue.

It is anticipated the #95 Kingshighway will be able to maintain current schedules despite the detour, and passengers traveling through the area should not experience any delays due to the bridge reconstruction. However, the #95 Kingshighway will not be able to serve several MetroBus stops on Kingshighway between Clayton Avenue and Magnolia Avenue as a result of the necessary reroute.

The following are options for passengers using the stops along the current #95 Kingshighway route that will not be served during the bridge reconstruction, beginning July 6.

Specific details on MetroBus reroutes can be found on the Rider Alerts and Service Updates sections. Customers may also call Metro Transit Information at 314-231-2345 (Missouri) or 618-271-2345 (Illinois), Monday through Friday between 7:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., for more information.

      Michael, I went ahead and fixed the tag. Thank you.

  2. Steve S says:

    Will the Kingshighway bus stop at all the bus stops on Taylor, Chouteau and Tower Grove?

    I don’t understand the detour for 14 and looked at the detours in the Rider Alerts and did not find a detour for this construction. Can we get more specific routing for the 14?

    1. Matthew Hibbard says:

      Steve, have you checked out this link yet? Take a look and let us know if you still have any futher questions.
