Market Street to be Closed for Downtown Infrastructure Work
Revitalization Project Will Help to Improve Reliability of Electrical System

In the next phase of Ameren Missouri's downtown St. Louis revitalization project, Market Street will be closed in the eastbound lanes between Broadway and 4th Street, beginning Tuesday, Jan. 21, 2014. Traffic will be redirected down Broadway to Walnut Street during this phase of the project, which could last up to eight weeks.

The downtown revitalization project began last year and is a multi-year project focused on making upgrades to facilities and equipment in the underground network. Certain facilities, conduits and manholes downtown have been in constant use for almost 100 years and replacements are critical to ensure the continued reliability of the system.

During construction, 4th Street will remain open. Lane restrictions between Clark and Pine Streets will also be implemented. Ameren Missouri has actively coordinated the project with the City of St. Louis and Missouri Department of Transportation in conjunction with the Park Over the Highway project.
