South County Connector
Since the 1950s there have been plans on the books to build a major road connecting South County to central St. Louis County. The original plan was build a highway but there wasn’t public support. Over time the proposal has evolved into various forms of road projects and this time it is envisioned as the South County Connector—likely a limited access roadway including significant elevated infrastructure, ranging from 4 to 7 lanes in width, with double turn lanes, wide shoulders for fearless bicyclists, and limited pedestrian access and comfort. Trailnet is concerned that this project is largely guided by the oft-discredited 20th-Century mindset of trying to manage traffic volume through increased road capacity instead of the 21st-Century paradigm of developing a variety of multi-modal transportation options that maintain and generate community value.
