The Old Olive Street Road redesign is a key priority of the 39 North Master Plan that calls for new transportation networks woven into the existing framework of the business park and institutional campuses. The Old Olive corridor will be a destination – one that considers commuters and employees as well as residents who will enjoy and benefit from the new streetscape experience.

Today, Old Olive primarily functions as an offramp for Lindbergh Blvd. and does not cross Lindbergh. The two halves of 39 North are awkwardly bisected by this limited-access State highway.

The Old Olive Street redesign is complete. Creve Coeur will be taking over operations of Old Olive Street and leading the efforts to transform a vehicle-dominated commercial corridor into a bikable/walkable main street that serves as a central commercial hub of the innovation district and contributes to the economic and physical health of the community.

Phase One includes the reconstruction of the Old Olive and Lindbergh intersection to add left turn lanes, new signals, lighting, and a shared-use path crossing. Subsequent phases would include work on the east and west sides of Old Olive to complete road construction and add shared-use paths, medians, branding elements, a stormwater park and a greenway trailhead.

Phase One is scheduled for construction in FY 2024, to be completed by spring 2024.   The $2.6 million project is funded by the City of Creve Coeur, a federal surface transportation program grant, and the State of Missouri cost-share program.

Design Elements:

  • Old Olive will function as a two-lane road
  • A multi-use path is located on the south side
  • Pedestrian sidewalk is located on the north side
  • Green space on the south side is a lighting and landscape corridor
  • Section converts to accommodate on-street parking in desirable areas
