I've forwarded this to our Division of Operations for investigation. Thank you for bringing it to our attention. David Wrone, St. Louis County
There are speed humps planned for ward 15 south of Tower Grove to combat excessive speeding through neighborhood streets. In regards to the other locations you mentioned, the City only considers speed humps in cooperation with local Alderpersons when they have sufficient funds to implement them AND where a speed study has been conducted to verify there indeed is a problem warranting a traffic calming solution.
The Kingshighway bridge will be fully open in mid November. I will alert crews to the debris you mentioned.
Are you talking about on westbound I-70 in Illinois, or on eastbound I-70 to I-44? If you are talking about in Illinois, you would have to discuss that with the Illinois DOT -- they are not on this chat. The eastbound I-70 is odd, because, technically, the exit is straight ahead onto I-44 (which is marked exit only). Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
Not a problem. Thanks for the question! Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communciations
Last week, a Road Crew reader posted the following concerns regarding our recent restriping of Big Bend: "The lanes are not appropriately striped on eastbound Big Bend approaching Grant Road...there are going to be accidents there with the way the lanes were just re-done. 2 lanes go down to 1, and then they immediately split again into a straight and a right turn lane...why wouldn't the drop down to 1 lane occur after Grant Road? Everyone I know that drives that stretch has been complaining about it." ST. LOUIS COUNTY'S REPLY: Dropping the second eastbound lane on Big Bend Boulevard after Grant Road would work well for traffic patterns in that area. However, there is insufficient pavement width to carry two lanes past Grant Road while still providing a westbound turn lane at Grant Road. Also, the southern Big Bend Boulevard curb bumps out where the right turn lane to Grant Road begins, resulting in insufficient width and preventing us from being able to carry two eastbound lanes past that point. In order to carry two lanes to Grant Road, not only would the curb need to be relocated to the south, but a utility pole and a drainage structure would also need to be relocated. While this work wasn't included in our resurfacing project, it will be completed in conjunction with a project to improve the traffic signal at Berry Road, which is scheduled for construction in a few years. Until then, we'll continue to monitor the area. David Wrone, St. Louis County
I'll check on this, and post a reply next week. (Although MoDOT maintains most of Telegraph, this section is within our system.) David Wrone, St. Louis County
