MoDOT is hosting an open-house style public meeting to discuss its portion of the CityArchRiver 2015 project, namely the “lid” over I-70 and everything that entails.

Much as when the NPS revealed and opened up their environmental assessment for public comment, it is very important for everyone to take the time to submit comments to MoDOT with opinions on how this most dear of projects to St. Louis should proceed.

During the meeting, MoDOT engineers will be on hand to discuss several proposed alternatives for the Park over the Highway portion of the CAR2015 project, to include what the department believes is the preferred alternative. Engineers will also be able to discuss potential impacts of each alternative.

This meeting will allow the public to provide input, and comments, either directly to the engineers or in written comments, on the alternatives presented. This meeting is part of the process to complete necessary Federal requirements for the project.

Since there are no formal presentations during the public meeting, participants may attend at any time during the open house.

Update (April 9): Unsurprisingly, MoDOT has said that they are not considering the removal of I-70 due to the inability to complete such a project by the October 2015 deadlined imposed by CityArchRiver 2015.
