Update: This configuration was completed.
Yesterday, on an on-line chat at the Post-Dispatch, Todd Waeltermann confirmed that Manchester Avenue between Kingshighway and Vandeventer is being reduced from four lanes to two. Due to the increased pedestrian activity, this is a great step towards making the Grove a more desirable place to live. Frankly, the old four lanes were way too narrow, making the outside lanes undriveable most of the time anyway. The new curbs will codify what was really reality, and hopefully make traffic on that stretch of Manchester less aggressive.
