What will happen to cycling on Tower Grove Avenue when Kingshighway closes for a year and a half this winter to rebuild a bridge? Tower Grove Avenue is the busiest bicycling route in St. Louis, but the upcoming closure of Kingshighway threatens to send a lot of traffic down its narrow lanes. The City’s current plan poses real problems for cyclists, but viable alternative solutions exist. (Details here.)
On the evening of Thursday, October 9 we will host a meeting for bicyclists, as well as supporters of city cycling, to discuss and get feedback on the upcoming closure, the City’s proposal, safety concerns for riders, and possible solutions. Join us at UIC (1607 Tower Grove Avenue) Thursday, October 9, 2014 from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM. (Note the updated location.) Register here to get updates and additional info.
