About the Project

The project will reconstruct 1.6 miles of 20th Street between Market Street and St. Louis Avenue and will consist of adding a separated bicycle path that is part of the Brickline Greenway, a bicycle pathway that is part of the Great Rivers Greenway (GRG) network of pathways.

The new 60-foot wide corridor will provide a safer and more attractive experience for pedestrians, bicyclists, transit riders, vehicular drivers, and property owners. The project upgrades the poor condition of the roadway and its pavement markings, sidewalk, signals, lighting, signing and street trees, while creating an accessible corridor for all users.

The project is part of the new Brickline Greenway and MLS stadium at Market Street. This project has $5 million in federal funds committed for construction.This project supports the Project Connect Action Plan.

Project Goals

  • Increase safety and better serve pedestrians, bicyclists, transit riders, vehicular drivers and property owners
  • Upgrade the poor condition of the roadway and its pavement markings, sidewalk, signals, lighting and signing
  • Create an accessible corridor for all users
  • Transfer the bicycle facility from North Jefferson Avenues and Parnell Street to 20th Street, and eliminating the on-street bicycle facility that currently exists
  • Improve vehicular trip efficiency with new interconnected signals
  • Support the existing community fabric of residents and businesses
  • Assist in changing neighborhood perceptions through streetscape enhancements
  • The project provides connections between GRG's proposed Brickline Greenway, the City's planned bicycle pathway ending at Market Street, and future/existing bicycle routes identified along Chestnut Street, Olive Street, Washington Avenue, and St. Louis Avenue.

The project bridges the gap between downtown and North St. Louis by creating a truly low-stress multimodal corridor that safely moves people.

We Want Your Input!

20th Street is a part of the City’s larger efforts to make it easier for people to get around without a car. This includes making it safer and easier for people to walk, ride bikes, or catch the bus. Help us design with you in mind by filling out our survey.

We want to hear your reactions to the early designs as the project moves forward.

  • How will this affect your sense of safety or experience walking, biking, or taking transit through this corridor?
  • How important is having parking on both sides throughout the corridor?
  • Would this project make it more pleasant to be on 20th Street?
  • Does it seem like a positive change to your neighborhood?
  • How could this be done differently for it to work better for you?

Please join the 20th Street Design Team at a Pop-Up Event to showcase some preliminary design ideas. Scheduled for September 1, 2022 outside of Brick River Cider directly south of Washington Avenue. See our event flyer for additional details.
