ST. LOUIS, MO. (KTVI) - The $110 Million Dollar South County Connector is a proposed St. Louis County road project that's supposed to improve getting around in St Louis County. The road would help travel from North to South much like 170 does in North County.
The road would slice though a number of communities including Maplewood, Shrewsbury, Webster Groves, and the City Of St. Louis. A number of these cities are already complaining that it would destroy businesses along its route and that it's a big waste of money.
The organization TRAILNET in St Louis is one of the largest in the nation promoting walking, bike riding and public transit. They have also come out against the project. They news conference scheduled for Tuesday to announce their opposition to it.
St. Louis County Chief Operations Officer Garry Earls defends this costly deal in a spirited interview with Investigator Elliott Davis. See if he convinces you that this deal is worth your tax dollars.
