In 2015, representatives from the Washington University School of Medicine, BJC, CORTEX, and the University of Health Sciences and Pharmacy came together to undertake a comprehensive traffic and mobility study for the Washington University Medical Center district and surrounding neighborhoods. The objective of this study was to develop recommendations for effective transportation solutions over the next 15 years.

Updates to the study were completed in 2017 and 2019. Recommendations for initial improvement projects were identified in 2017 and the first improvement project began in 2019 with the widening of Newstead Avenue.

The impact of the recent COVID-19 pandemic is being reviewed to assess its current and future impact on campus mobility. A current update to the plan is ongoing.
