Public to view plans for Arch grounds, riverfront

Tuesday, January 24, 2012 | 11:58 a.m. CST

ST. LOUIS — The public can get a first glimpse this week at plans to revitalize the Gateway Arch grounds and the St. Louis riverfront.

KMOX Radio reports that a public hearing on the project known as CityArchRiver 2015 will be held at 6 p.m. Wednesday at the Ferrara Theatre inside America's Center Convention Complex.

Jefferson National Expansion Memorial superintendent Tom Bradley said the first phase will be what he calls a "lid" over Interstate 70, letting people move freely between the Arch and riverfront and the rest of downtown.

Bradley said plans also call for new exhibits, new programming on the park grounds and raising Leonor K. Sullivan Boulevard on the riverfront by a couple of feet to cut down on days lost to flooding.
