Following a 10-month project, a paved path will connect Slay Park in Ellendale to the northern end of the existing River Des Peres Greenway.
Beginning Monday, traffic on Ellendale and Wabash avenues will be reduced to one northbound and one southbound lane between Lansdowne and Canterbury avenues as part of work to extend the River Des Peres Greenway 1.8 miles north from Lansdowne to Francis R. Slay Park, according to Great Rivers Greenway, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch has reported.
“When the greenway is finished, people will be able to walk, ride a bike, push a stroller or use a wheelchair completely separate from traffic, all the way from the new neighborhood greenway at Arsenal and McCausland to Lemay and Carondelet parks,” said Angelica Gutierrez, Great Rivers Greenway project manager, in a statement.
