Main Drive in Tower Grove Park, which runs east-west connecting Grand Avenue to Center Cross Drive/Flag Circle, will be closed for repaving March 2-31, 2017.
All entrances to the Park will remain open, with eastbound traffic redirected to the outer South Drive and westbound traffic redirected to outer North Drive. All buildings, pavilions, and other Park amenities will remain open and accessible during this closure. The section of Main Drive between the von Humbolt statue and Center Cross will have temporary partial closures; please follow traffic signs as needed.
In addition to repaving Main Drive with new asphalt, the speed bumps are being removed and replaced with speed tables—longer, less abrupt traffic calming devices that raise the entire wheelbed of a car.
We hope you enjoy the smoother ride on Main Drive starting in April! At this time, we do not have dates for any activity affecting Center Cross drive, which is managed by the City of St. Louis. We will share any news as soon as it becomes available.
