Riverport Levee District from the air

The Riverport Project is located in the City of Maryland Heights, St. Louis County, Missouri approximately 17 miles northwest of the City of St. Louis.  The Urban Levee, designed for the 500-year Missouri River flood event, extends from about river mile 30.4 to river mile 29.6 above the Mississippi River on the right descending bank.  The project consists of a 1.7 mile long levee that protects the Riverport area and a portion of Interstate Highway I-70 from Missouri River floods. 

Riverport Business Park is a 525-acre master-planned business and entertainment community that was carved out of the Missouri River floodplain through the construction of the Riverport Levee in 1980.
