Forest Park Parkway (St. Louis)
Forest Park Parkway is a parkway in St. Louis, Missouri that runs from I-170 in Clayton, Missouri, becomes Forest Park Avenue at Kingshighway Boulevard, and ends at Market and I-64. It is considered an arterial snow route. The corridor began life in the 19th century as a heavy rail line used by the Wabash and Rock Island rail systems. The heavy rail line was replaced with streetcars, and later, the Parkway. Before 1959, Forest Park Avenue ran west from the city[where?] and terminated at the eastern edge of Forest Park, at Kingshighway Boulevard. Construction on the route west of Kingshighway to the suburban community of Clayton began in 1959.
