Trailnet’s Weekly Roundup

It was a another busy week for transportation in St. Louis. Here is Trailnet’s weekly round-up of local and national news!

Trailnet was proud to participate in the APA Missouri’s January meeting. In 2014 we identified 3 opportunity areas in the City of STL (North City, Forest Park Southeast and Dutchtown), in need of environmental solutions to: reduce pollution, aid in storm water management and create better access to safer streets. In collaboration with the City of STL and many community partners, we secured 2 grants to introduce Calm Streets, providing active transportation, environmental, public health, social and economic benefits for residents.
