Gravois Improvement project

Gravois in St. Louis City

What is the latest?

MoDOT continues to update signals along Gravois at several intersections. The work at Morgan Ford Road, Arsenal Street, Chippewa Street and Kingshighway Boulevard, Cherokee/Tennessee, Utah/Louisiana, Compton/Wyoming, Ohio/Lynch, California, Shenandoah/McNair, Russell and 12th/Geyer should be complete by this summer. All of the updated signals will have detection and pedestrian countdowns.

This year, MoDOT is making pavement repairs and resurfacing Gravois between the city limits and I-44/Tucker. Crews will start at the city limits and move east to remove and replace the driving surface. Work will be at night, during off-peak traffic hours, and crews will close one lane in each direction. This work will be completed later this year.

MoDOT will make a number of safety improvements along the corridor, based on discussions with residents along this section of Gravois, including continental or “zebra-stripe” crosswalks. The bold lines in the crosswalk make the crosswalk, and the pedestrians within the crosswalk, more visible to roadway users.

How will this help Gravois?

The road diet will help smooth the flow of traffic along Gravois. By removing left turns from travel lanes and reducing the number of lanes, there will be less difference between the speeds of the traffic along Gravois. The road diet between Christy and Chippewa and between Jefferson and I-55 gives pedestrians a shorter crossing at mid-block crossings, such as Itaska and Almenia. The shorter crossings and updated flashing warning beacons will help improve pedestrian safety.

With the road diet, MoDOT will also add bike lanes on Gravois between Christy and Chippewa as well as between Jefferson and I-55. Those bike lanes will connect to the neighborhood greenways.

Parking on Gravois will remain where it is today after all the improvements are made.

What will not be done

Unfortunately, with limited funding, other projects that could improve the flow of vehicle (including transit and cyclist) and pedestrian traffic cannot be completed. We will continue to talk with the community and participate in conversations and planning study efforts for developing a vision for the corridor.
