Kinghighway is a D.I.Y. skatespot under a bridge in St.Louis, Missouri, USA. Built by local skateboarders. We Skateboarders come together here & build whatever is on our minds to skate. With this motivation in the right direction STL can have a bridge as good as Burnside, or FDR!! We own the tools/knowledge to move barriers & build ramps. It"s all about being creative and having fun! WE NEED HELP!! Bring cinder blocks, dirt, rock, rebar, concrete, mason mix, tools, and work!

KHVT Art Sale/Auction coming soon!!!!


(click for larger)

Our first Art show is coming up in Nov. so tell everyone you know to come out and buy some unique art so we can pour some more CRETE! Even if your not into art, Friday night should be a good time! Devine Wine and Spirits will be there giving out free wine samples and we will have a small Skate demo in the courtyard! Stopping in at the show will also get you free admission to The Gramophone that night and Roo has promised us 10% of the bar sales as a donation so drink up!!!

5 more yards courtesy of KHVT!!!!



Even with all the scheduling issues we still managed to get 5 yards of fresh crete down! Thanks to everyone who helped make it possible including everyone who came to Gore on the Floor! You paid for it! Special thanks to the crew, the random shovels that showed up and a BIG thank you to our neighbors at Uhaul, Larry and Cathy, for the use of there water and being so understanding!

On a side note, We at KHVT love art and even graffiti but the city has told us that in order to keep the bridge going we need to keep the graffiti painted over. We know the bridge has been a spot for all you writers for years before we were there but now we are here and trying to create a great place for skaters of the city to come and not get in trouble for doing what they love. So please go somewhere else. There are over 10 bridges and overpasses within a mile of us..... Don't HATE!
