With an enthusiastic crowd in attendance, St. Louis, MO-based Waterway® Carwash held a grand opening and ribbon-cutting celebration July 19 for the first Waterway Express in St. Louis, located at 2261 S. Kingshighway.

Joining company president and CEO Bob Dubinsky during the event were Henry Dubinsky, founder of Waterway; Lewis Reed, president, St. Louis board of aldermen; Jacob Hummel, senator, District 4; and Steve Conway, chief of staff for Mayor Lyda Krewson. Prior to the ribbon cutting, Conway read a Mayoral Proclamation declaring July 19-22 “Waterway Express Week” in the city of St. Louis.

In celebration of the first Waterway Express, free car washes were offered to the public throughout the weekend of July 20-22.

The Waterway Express, featuring a double-tunnel concept, is the first Express to open in the five cities Waterway serves. Waterway invested $4.5 million in improvements to the site, which includes bioretention basins as well as LED lighting for the entire facility.
