Parking & Directions
As part of the CityArchRiver2015 project celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Gateway Arch, road construction is currently taking place around the major arteries of the Arch grounds and the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial. We will continually update the closure and detour information to ensure our guests are able to visit throughout the construction period.
Please plan to allow extra time to get through construction areas. See detour directions below for the most up-to-date street closure and construction information.
