(Bloomberg) -- A Missouri agency plans to offer municipal bonds to fund renovations around St. Louis’s Gateway Arch and the courthouse that held the Dred Scott trial.

The Great Rivers Greenway District will borrow about $57 million as soon as tomorrow for projects including landscaping and pathways near the Arch and improved safety and access to the Old Courthouse, according to offering documents. The 630-foot (192-meter) high arch was built in 1963 as a monument to Thomas Jefferson and other pioneers who considered St. Louis the “Gateway to the West.”
