New proposal to remove I-70 in front of the Arch

(KMOV) -- A group called “City to River” has a radical new idea for the remodel of the Arch grounds.

The group proposes to remove Interstate 70 in front of the Arch grounds and put a tree-lined, pedestrian friendly boulevard in its place, similar to Michigan Avenue in Chicago.

The group sees I-70 as a barrier between Downtown and the riverfront. The proposal is separate from the current competition to redesign the Arch grounds.

“City to River” estimates that the project could cost $70 to $100 million dollars.
