Design is complete. Construction is on hold pending additional funds.


At the request of the 28th Ward Alderwoman, the President's Office of the City of St. Louis Board of Public Service has contracted with CBB to provide traffic engineering design services for improvements proposed to Lindell Boulevard (Skinker to Kingshighway). The project lies along the northern edge of Forest Park.


Project Objective

  • The purpose of the project is to calm traffic and improve the safety for all users of Lindell where based on previous studies, it is desired to reduce travel lanes and make the entire corridor safer for pedestrians and bicyclists.
  • Coordinate with the upcoming project to replace the Union-Lindell Bridge over Forest Park Parkway/MetroLink.

Facility Description

  • Lindell Boulevard extends from Skinker near the City Limits to Grand and then continues as Olive Street to N. 4th in Downtown St. Louis.
  • Lindell/Olive west of Tucker is classified as a minor arterial which means that it carries longer distance flows between important activity centers such as Downtown St. Louis, SLU, Grand Center, Forest Park, and Washington University.
  • Existing street section consists of two lanes in each direction.
  • The Average Daily Traffic (ADT) for the length of the study area is 9,770 vehicles per day (vpd). The segment from Union to West Pine has the heaviest volume at 12,353 vpd.
