About the Central Riverfront Construction Project
The District's work on the downtown St. Louis Central Riverfront is one of 12 project components that make up the CityArchRiver 2015 project.
Great Rivers Greenway will oversee the construction of improvements to the Central Riverfront, one of the twelve project components. The riverfront work includes the elevation of Leonor K. Sullivan Boulevard, which will reduce flooding on the central riverfront and allow the opportunity for more activities along Leonor K. Sullivan Boulevard.
Federal TIGER grant funds for the Central Riverfront portion were approved as of August 7, 2013.
Great Rivers Greenway bid 10 construction packages related to the central riverfront in late September or early October 2013.
In advance of the bid open, the District and its partners met with organizations and leaders working to promote skills, careers and capacity of DBE/MBE firms in the region, with the goal of ensuring a proactive and inclusive CityArchRiver 2015 project.
The District gathered attendee feedback and gave a glimpse of the exciting projects and opportunities to come. More than 50 participants were in attendance.
The next event will be a Pre-Bid Meeting and DBE/MBE Mixer on October 2, 2013 at City Hall West, 1520 Market Street in the 1st Floor Conference Room at 10:00 a.m. This pre-bid meeting and mixer will be specific to the Central Riverfront Project.
