In 2016, East-West Gateway completed the fourth round of Great Streets demonstration projects, whcih included Gravois Road in St. Louis County. The round four projects were funded through federal transportation planning grants and local funds provided by the project sponsors.
Gravois Road is located in Affton in St. Louis County, Missouri. EWG in collaboration with the community leaders of Affton, St. Louis County, the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT), and other key stakeholders developed a series of white papers which culminated in the Gravois Road Strategic Planning Report. EWG’s goal for the planning document was to create a concise practical tool that the community could use to make Gravois Road a great street. The planning process for Gravois Road included community engagement and feedback, an examination of existing conditions (e.g. transportation, land use and zoning, environmental, economic) along the Gravois Road corridor, and the identification of strategies for improving the corridor and potential funding sources to support the improvements.
