Residents can weigh in again on a pedestrian bridge proposed for the north side of the new westbound Interstate 44 bridge over the Meramec River after the project received a mix of positive and negative feedback from the 169 attendees at a previous open house.

The Missouri Department of Transportation, Great Rivers Greenway and the cities of Sunset Hills, Kirkwood and Fenton will host another open house next week about the more than $1 million bridge, which is funded by money from the St. Louis County Municipal Parks Grant and Great Rivers Greenway.

Project partners Great Rivers Greenway, MoDOT and the three cities welcome residents to a second open house about the project Tuesday, Oct. 15 at the RiverChase Recreation Center in Fenton, 990 Horan Drive, from 6 to 8 p.m. Like the first open house in Sunset Hills, the community is invited to provide feedback about the pedestrian bridge.

The pedestrian bridge project, which is still in the planning stages and won’t go out to bid for construction until the end of 2020, will connect Stoneywood Drive to the Meramec Greenway near Yarnell Road. This will make it possible for people to walk, ride a bike, push a stroller or use a wheelchair to connect to parks, businesses and neighborhoods on both sides of the river.
