Washington University Medical Center and the CORTEX district just east of the Medical Campus are evolving daily. A webpage has been created to keep visitors, employees and residents informed about street-improvement projects and traffic flow in the area. Views from a live webcam showing the progress also are available via this link.
CORTEX, a nonprofit organization, is a collaboration of Washington University in St. Louis, Saint Louis University, BJC Healthcare, the University of Missouri-St. Louis and the Missouri Botanical Garden. Its goal is to develop 187 acres in the Central West End into one of the nation’s leading research districts.
