ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - The St. Louis Blues announced they will begin a nine-month renovation process to update all of the escalators located throughout Enterprise Center, Wednesday. The Blues still have seven home games remaining on the schedule and there will be 12 stairwells open throughout the building to help fans get to their seats. 

All of the escalators are original to the building’s construction and their upgrading is an element of the overall three-year renovation project at Enterprise Center. The project will put the approximately 19,000 arena on par with many of the other top sports and entertainment venues in the country. The project also reinforces that the safety and welfare of all Enterprise Center guests, as well as optimizing their experience, is a top priority.

Alternate Routes

Enterprise Center will open all 12 stairwells throughout the building to serve as alternatives to escalator use. Escalators undergoing construction and all stairwells will be identified with appropriate signage. Enterprise Center will also install blade signs – similar to directional signage currently found throughout the building – that will clearly indicate the location of a stairwell and where it leads. As always, members of the Enterprise Center Guest Services Staff will be on hand at all venue events to help mitigate any issues.
