Shared Use Paths Planned for I-270
As apart of the I-270 North Project, the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) has planned for significant bicycle and pedestrian improvements in the form of shared use paths on the I-270 North and South Outer Roads.
A 6-mile stretch of shared-use path will run from N. Lindbergh Blvd (Route 67) to Breezy Point Lane along Dunn Road, while a 4-mile stretch of shared-use path will run from Hanley/Graham Roads to Old Halls Ferry Road along Pershall Road. Connections will also be made across I-270 to connect both shared-use paths. See this map for more details.
The project will look to “maximize reliability and safety while linking communities for all users,” as well as providing walking and biking facilities in an area of the St. Louis Metro region where few facilities exist today.
The shared-use path will provide improved walking and biking conditions between locations like the North County Transit Center, St. Louis Community College Florissant-Valley, McCluer High School, Grandview Plaza Shopping Center, the Christian Hospital, among other commercial, educational, and residential developments.
