***Important Information for guests arriving between November 2016 and July 2017***

The project to construct a traditional intersection at Forest Park Parkway and Kingshighway Boulevard and rebuild a bridge over the MetroLink tracks (just west of Kingshighway) is moving forward, with detours starting in early November.  All work will be completed in July 2017.

Streets will be affected as follows:

  • Forest Park Parkway will close west of Kingshighway to Union.
  • Forest Park Parkway will be limited to one lane in each direction east of Kingshighway to Euclid Avenue.
  • Kingshighway lanes will remain open during the day, with limited evening closures.

Forest Park Ave in front of the Parkway Hotel will not be effected by the construction.
