CENTENNIAL GREENWAY PROJECT
Plans to extend the Centennial Greenway: KATY Trail to Heritage Museum across Highways 364 and 94 via two bridges are moving forward. These bridges will make it possible for people to safely walk or ride a bike across these busy highways; connecting schools, neighborhoods, parks, and businesses to each other as well as other area attractions like the KATY Trail and Indian Meadows Park. The plans call for a one-mile extension of the existing 2.2-mile Centennial Greenway just east of the Heritage Museum. The paved greenway will head north and cross both highways 364 and 94 where it will connect to Old Highway 94 near Muegge Road. The new route will enable on-street connections to nearby Laurel Park, Schaefer Park, Wapelhorst Park, the Laurel Park Trail, McClay Branch of the St. Charles City-County Library, Francis Howell North High School and Henderson Elementary School—all of which are less than two miles from the bridges. This project was bid in November 2016 and construction is scheduled to begin in the spring of 2017 and expected to last about a year.
