From a local news source "With a 30-acre riverside lake, the new waterfront stretching between the Ameristar casino and the Family Arena would be lined with office space, retail, hotels and residential developments" If cyclists don't watch this project we could see bad effects on the trail. I mean like having 25 new places where cars turn across your path, for instance. I remember how the new soccer fields in nearby Creve Coeur Park ruined one of the mixed use trails there (IMO). I am guessing cycling is close to the last thing considered in these projects.

A quick google found this: The Katy Trail will be raised to above the 100-year flood elevation, and re-routed along the perimeter of the site, removing vehicular crossings.

Funny I found no such information on my google search. Plans aren't final yet. The developer's website is one page with no information.

What they say now may not be what they do later. We need to watch this.

I stopped using the Katy Trail in St Charles some time ago because of the horrible maintenance of the natural setting.
