Chouteau Greenway official dedication and grand opening on July 31

Project partners will host a celebration to mark the grand opening of the Cortex MetroLink Station and Chouteau Greenway during a special dedication ceremony on Tuesday, July 31, in St. Louis.

Construction of the Bi-State region’s newest greenway, and the first MetroLink station to be built in more than a decade, began last summer — the first Metro Transit project to be constructed using public and private funding.

Located between the Central West End and Grand MetroLink Stations, the Cortex Station will become the light rail system’s 38th MetroLink station and will provide a new, convenient transportation option for the thousands of employees and visitors in the central corridor of St. Louis where parking is at a premium.

The first quarter-mile section of the Chouteau Greenway has been constructed just north of the Cortex Station between Boyle and Sarah Avenues. When the entire five-mile greenway is completed, it will allow individuals, groups and families to walk or ride bicycles from the Gateway Arch to Forest Park on a paved, accessible path separated from street traffic.

The dedication will take place at 10 a.m. at the Cortex Commons at 4270 Duncan Ave., St. Louis. Representatives from the Federal Transit Administration, Cortex Innovation Community, Washington University, BJC HealthCare, Great Rivers Greenway, City of St. Louis, Citizens for Modern Transit, Metro Transit and Bi-State Development are anticipated.
