Great Streets Gravois!

What is the Great Streets program?

Rather than viewing a roadway project as solely a way to move more cars and trucks faster, the goal of the St. Louis Great Streets Initiative is to trigger economic and social benefits by centering communities around interesting, lively and attractive streets that serve all modes of transportation– in brief, building stronger communities.

The Great Streets Gravois Road Project

In 2016 St. Louis County partnered with East-West Gateway and a team of consultants to study a portion of the Gravois Road corridor. The project/study limits for Gravois Road is from MacKenzie Road to River Des Peres Blvd. In early May three evening community meetings were held in and near the project corridor to share information and collect feedback from residents and business owners as to what improvements they would like to see along this portion of Gravois Road. Community-based focus groups were also assembled and met during the day and offered valuable input and direction to the project team.

Community Meeting Presentations and Polling Results

The project team compiled existing conditions information, market trends, and community input to formulate recommendations of how to make this segment of Gravois Road a great street.
