ST. LOUIS (KMOV) – An updated design plan for the Gateway Arch grounds renovation was presented with more detail to the design and initiated necessary permitting processes on Wednesday night.
The project includes plans for both sides of the Mississippi River with main goal to make the Arch more accessible and safe to travel to for visitors.
The CityArchRiver Foundation also announced that it has secured funding from public and private sources to support the new development. The foundation has raised $57 million of the projected $553 million needed to complete the project and is hoping to unveil the new grounds in October 2015.
The foundation is looking for private donations and federal money to get the project started.
