The Gateway Bike Plan will create the bicycle component to the regional transportation network that accommodates all users and promotes consistent design and development of bicycle facilities.
Alta Planning + Design is providing education, encouragement, and evaluation as well as engineering for the implementation of the Gateway Bike Plan. The plan area covers the city of St. Louis, St. Louis County, and St. Charles County in the St. Louis region. The work is for the Great Rivers Greenway District in support of community partners.

In addition, Alta is providing technical assistance for the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT), Metro, the City of St. Louis, St. Louis and St. Charles municipalities, St. Louis County, and St. Charles County related to design of bikeways that are being implemented as a result of the plan.
