ST. LOUIS (KMOV) -- The city has been awarded a grant of more than $1.5 million renovate a stretch of Newstead Avenue in north St. Louis.
Newstead Avenue will get new sidewalks, trees and streets from Natural Bridge to Page. Alderman Sam Moore of the city's Fourth Ward said he has high hopes for the project.
"It will hopefully entice development to come and put new things on Newstead, but it's going to be a beautiful strip, just like Jennings Station Road," Moore said.
The money will come from grants and a small ward capital improvement fund
