I have passed both concerns along to our signal team to investigate. You can call items in like these to our customer service team. We have people answering the calls around the clock at 275-1500 or 1-888-ASK-MODOT (1-888-275- 6636). Thanks
I passed your comment along to our pothole folks - thanks for heads up!
We will have resurfacing work along the entire stretch of St. Charles Rock Road between I-270 and the St. Louis City limits. As a part of that work, we will be updating sidewalks along the corridor to bring them up to the standards required by the Americans with Disabilities Act. We will work with the contractor to make sure that they establish reasonable pedestrian detours during construction work. Until we award the contract and talk to the contractor, we will not have specific information on when, precisely, work will be done in any specific section. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
We'll pass it along to have our team take a look at it. You may be getting caught as the signal cycles from its overnight programming to its rush hour programming. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
Our signals group is working directly with Washington University personnel and their consultants to mitigate traffic concerns at Throop and Forest Park Parkway.
A recent observation that coincided with your initial communication revealed that Throop Drive could use additional GREEN time during the evening peak period. We therefore provided additional GREEN time to Throop Drive to help reduce the backup during the evening peak period. An observation subsequent to making this timing change revealed that traffic on Throop cleared virtually every cycle. David Wrone, St. Louis County
I'll need to run this past our Traffic Studies group for a reply. I'll post their response as soon as I get it. David Wrone, St. Louis County
Our Traffic Studies engineers will need to ponder this and provide a reply. I'll post their information as soon as I receive it. Thank you for your interest in St. Louis County's road and street system. David Wrone, St. Louis County
I figured you meant "north." I changed that in your text when I forwarded it to our traffic studies people. Thanks, though! David Wrone
Most newer signals are able to handle the time change. Many of our signals, we can also control from our Transportation Management Center to make changes on the fly -- in case we have a bad crash on an interstate, for instance, we can make adjustments to timing on alternate routes to help traffic flow better. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
I have passed your concern along to our maintenance team. We will have to have decent weather and temperatures to complete that striping work. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
You are correct -- with the railroad bridge as close as it is, we cannot get any more left turn space in there. Currently, traffic trying to turn left on Vance backs up onto the northbound lanes and causes congestion during peak traffic periods. We are putting in a through turn -- so you drive through the intersection and make your left at a signalized U-turn location a little past the intersection. Then, you can make a right directly onto the side road (in this case, Vance). So, yes, the through turns on northbound and southbound Route 141 will have signals. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
I've asked our signal team to check it out to make sure everything is operating correctly. It may also be an all-red delay to prevent crashes (all directions show red for a short period). Traffic on Maryland Heights Expressway can get going pretty quickly. Although they should stop, if they are unable to do so, having a short period of all-red can help them clear the intersection before other traffic starts moving. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
I will pass this along - thanks for bringing this up!
Kingshighway, between Shaw and I-44, is scheduled to be open this spring to traffic. I will have a better answer for Hampton after the upcoming FY budget has been determined.
We will investigate the flashing signal at Morgan & 3rd. Thanks!
