While highway removal was not made explicit in every design scheme, a closer look reveals amazing support for highway removal. To quote the teams themselves:
“City to River articulates an enormous number of benefits arising from such a scheme…”Skidmore Owings Merrill/Hargreaves/BIG
“..the benefits of removing the highway altogether are clear...”Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates
“Full Circle’s grand loop of transportation facilities could be easily integrated into its [City to River’s] design."Weiss-Manfredi
"We predict fanfare should the elevated highway that cuts off Laclede’s Landing be removed."Behnisch
These proposals make it clear that experts from around the nation and world agree with City to River's growing network of supporters that highway removal is the ultimate solution to reconnect the city and riverfront.
