ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) – The new and approved Gateway Arch will be more accessible to everyone.

A group of VIP’s and community leaders took a tour of the ongoing construction Sunday. Officials said a special effort has been made to make sure everyone feels comfortable at the historic monument.

“Certainly everything is going to be wheelchair accessible. There is going to be captions for the deaf and probably some American Sign Language for them,” said David Newburger, who toured the construction. “There is going to be tactical exhibits so blind people can touch the exhibit in front of them and understand.”

The construction is scheduled to be complete in time for Fair Saint Louis next July.
