City of St. Louis Pursuing Traffic Study to Address Safety Concerns in Patch Neighborhood

The City of St. Louis is taking action to address numerous safety concerns in the Patch Neighborhood by conducting a traffic study at the Ivory Triangle location. This study will focus on the intersections of Ivory St., Virginia Ave., Courtois St., Schirmer St., and Steins St., with the goal of reducing speeding and improving pedestrian safety.

The study will provide both immediate and long-term solutions, including measures to decrease vehicle speeds, increase compliance with stop signs, and enhance pedestrian safety. In addition, the long-term plans will incorporate placemaking and beautification efforts, as well as improvements to local bicycle connector routes.
