Entrance to plaza

Euclid Avenue has been converted from a congested two-way street into a pedestrian plaza. It serves the BJC Institute of Health at the Washington University School of Medicine and adjacent medical buildings, as well as the Barnes / Jewish / Children's Hospital complexes. This is looking south along the right-of-way.
