Kingshighway - Forest Park Parkway Intersection Reconstruction

A project to create a traditional intersection at Forest Park Parkway and Kingshighway began December 5. 

The current configuration, with Forest Park Parkway running under Kingshighway, presents challenges for drivers accessing the medical center, the Central West End and Forest Park. Eastbound Forest Park Parkway drivers cannot turn onto northbound Kingshighway. Drivers on Kingshighway cannot access westbound Forest Park Parkway from either direction.  

Information found on this page details the benefits, impact and timeline of the project.
