ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

Crews were seen tearing up the concrete on Confederate Drive in Forest Park Monday.

The move comes several months after the Confederate memorial in Forest Park was removed. However, the city says work on Confederate Drive is not related to that or backlash against Confederate monuments or names.

Officials said plans to turn the street into a green space were created in 1995.
