Iron Horse Trestle

Great Rivers Greenway has begun painting its green-on-green logo on the I-70 overpass to look like the Grant’s Trail overpass on I-44. They're also making minor structural improvements as the first phase of transforming The Trestle into an elevated linear park.

The group hopes the logo will help raise awareness of the Trestle project as well as private funds to begin construction. The elevated linear park project was inspired by The High Line in New York and will require about $50 million to complete. Great Rivers Greenway plans to get public input on the project starting next spring.
