Downtown St. Louis walkway unveiled

Tuesday, May 27, 2008

ST. LOUIS (AP) -- A new walkway now links the St. Louis riverfront area to the rest of downtown.

The Lumiere Place casino on Tuesday opened what it calls Lumiere Link, which aims to be a more pedestrian-friendly way for people to walk from the main section of downtown to the casino area.

Pinnacle Entertainment operates the casino in the Laclede's Landing area of the riverfront. It paid for construction of the walkway.

The link runs 400 feet, beginning at Baer Plaza near the Edward Jones Dome, under Interstate 70, to Lumiere Place. The casino says it is well-lit and will be manned by casino personnel 24 hours every day.

Two sections of moving walkways are also available.
