ARP: St. Louis Mayor MO, Passed a Plan to Allocate $47.2 Million in American Rescue Plan Funding to Reduce Traffic Violence

Idea Category: Public Safety | Funding Source: American Rescue Plan

St. Louis Mayor Tishaura Jones proposed a plan to allocate $40 million in American Rescue Plan funding to reduce traffic violence. The plan includes infrastructure changes that will discourage dangerous driving behavior through curb extensions, raised intersections, and high-visibility crosswalks. For the first time since 2019, the Board of Aldermen passed a budget on to the mayor’s desk for her signature, and the administration is ready to work with the Board of Aldermen to make our streets safer no matter how residents choose to get around - walking, biking, using public transit, or driving. Speed humps have been approved in the 5800, 5900 and 6000 blocks of Bartmer Avenue. As of recently, Jones signed a bill that would include $12 million for new road design to calm traffic, $14.5 million for accessibility upgrades, and $3.5 million to improve safety at the ten most dangerous traffic hotspots in the city.
