ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – The cobblestones are not gone, they are just reset. This is according to the Laclede’s Landing Neighborhood Association.
Leaders plan to celebrate the end of work on 2nd Street between Washington Avenue and Morgan Street. The $1.46-million project left behind a smoother ride for drivers used to slowing to a crawl over the historic cobblestones. But, the work was more than just a surface facelift. Workers moved underground water lines, rebuilt street bases and upgraded sidewalks,
Business owners said they lost customers during the work that was supposed to be done in May 2014. But, a brutal winter pushed the completion date back. Drivers also put up with closed streets and detour signs.
So, neighborhood association leaders invited business owners and drivers to a ribbon cutting ceremony.
