The sales tax district charged with building and maintaining trails in St. Louis, St. Louis County and St. Charles County is seeking public input on a new regional plan.

Great Rivers Greenway is collecting survey responses online and at two open houses to find out how people are using the trails now and how they’d like to use them in the future.

The city of St. Louis and Saint Louis University may team up to improve traffic flow at the intersection of Forest Park Parkway and Grand Boulevard in Midtown.

The process is in the very early stages, a SLU spokesman said, and there is no guarantee that changes would be made. The university would fund a traffic study and then work with the city and a consultant to come up with new designs for the intersection at the heart of SLU's campus.

One of the toughest intersections for pedestrians in the city is getting a makeover.

The St. Louis Board of Aldermen on Friday set in motion a nearly $2 million  upgrade to the intersection of Clayton, Skinker, and Oakland on the southwest corner of Forest Park. Improvements include new signals, bike lanes, and crosswalks.

The St. Louis City streets department has closed Park Rd., a cut-off between Union and Lindell near Forest Park, to through traffic in an effort to improve pedestrian access to Forest Park.

Streets director Todd Waelterman says cars that used the road to avoid the stoplight at Union and Lindell were often traveling at a high rate of speed, making it difficult for pedestrians to cross. The closure will require drivers to use the stoplight, which includes crosswalks and pedestrian signals.
