Greater St. Louis Inc. Statement on Bike Lane and Construction Bill (BB 164)
Greater St. Louis, Inc. CEO Jason Hall issued the following statement today in response to the St. Louis Board of Aldermen advancing Alderwoman Christine Ingrassia’s bike lane and bridge construction bill (BB 164).

“Greater St. Louis, Inc. is committed to strengthening the core of our metro, as called for in the STL 2030 Jobs Plan, including with pedestrian-scale urban transit infrastructure.

“Alderwoman Ingrassia’s bill authorizes the city to develop new bike lanes on South Broadway Street and Tucker Boulevard, as well as a new Compton Avenue Bridge, and provides funding for the projects. We applaud the Board of Aldermen for advancing this legislation that is a critical component to implementing the Design Downtown STL Plan. We urge the Board of Aldermen to approve Alderwoman Ingrassia’s bill.”
