City Arch River

Scope of Work

In November of 2014, the National Park Service awarded Kozeny-Wagner, Inc. a $10.27 million contract to complete the North Gateway component of the CityArchRiver project.

The North Gateway is a seven acre park that will be a vibrant area of Jefferson National Expansion Memorial that will connect to the Eads Bridge, Laclede’s Landing, Washington Avenue and neighborhoods surrounding the Arch grounds to the north.

The North Gateway Park includes an explorers’ garden, an elevated walkway with views of the Mississippi River and the surrounding park, a natural amphitheater, and bicycle paths. The construction project is funded through both Proposition P revenue, overseen by Great Rivers Greenway, and private funding through the CityArchRiver 2015 Foundation. The National Park Service is managing the construction of the project.

“The North Gateway project will create a flexible space for concerts, festivals, events, and recreation,” said Tom Bradley, superintendent of Jefferson National Expansion Memorial. “We are pleased that the area will include accessible pathways to connect the Arch grounds with our neighboring communities.”
