Improving the Highway K, Main Street and Highway M corridor
Welcome to the website for the O’Fallon Connected corridor study. This three-phased plan will look at the north-south corridor that extends from the intersection of Highway M and Route 79 down to the I-64 and Highway K interchange. Highways M and K are both Missouri Department of Transportation (Mo-DOT) owned roadways, while Main Street, which runs through the heart of downtown, links the two and is owned by the City of O’Fallon.

Highway K & M Pedestrian and Bicycle Improvement Plan
The Highway K and M portions of this process will focus developing a Pedestrian and Bicycle Improvement Plan, which aims to better integrate pedestrian, bicycle, and automobile facilities along the corridor.
The resulting plan will fill in gaps in the existing sidewalk and trail network and improve connections to neighborhoods, parks, schools and other important destinations. The plan will create connections across I-70 as well as I-64 to access Busch Wildlife and the Katy Trail. This project is about developing a complete, comprehensive, and cohesive transportation system for better transportation and recreational choices. Some of the important areas that will be studied include:
- Improved and expanded trails and sidewalks
- Upgrades to the South Bike Loop, with potential for expansion to other areas of the City
- A new connection across I-70
- A new connection south of I-64 in conjunction with Great Rivers Greenway to connect to Busch Wildlife and the Katy Trail
- Improved crosswalks and pedestrian/bike traffic signals
- The potential for a pedestrian bridge over Highway K
- Enhanced landscaping and buffering
- Explore modifications to driving lanes north of I-70 to better manage travel speeds
- Improved parking and wayfinding
- Relocation or burying some above ground utilities and storm water system improvements

Main Street Corridor
The study started with a focus on the Main Street portion. This study included information gathering through public engagement and provide potential concepts for improving the streetscape, aesthetics, functionality and walkability of Main Street.

- Public infrastructure improvements and overall aesthetics
- Off-street parking
- Stormwater management
- Relocation or undergrounding of utilities
- Trail connections and development (includes possible trailheads)
- Railroad on the north side of the area
- Public Safety, access management and traffic speed
