A new sign should be going in next week. We had to coordinate the sign with the St. Louis City Streets team since it will be on city right-of-way. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
Do you mean westbound? Westbound I-44 access on/off at 7th St. is the only closure till December. We will verify the contractor has placed the correct signage at all locations.
I've talked to our team overseeing the project and they will work on getting a sign in the depressed section (along westbound I-44) warning people that the ramp at 7th Street is closed. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
We do have several signs up asking people not to make the left from Grand onto the interstate; We cannot completely block the left turn because there is traffic that still needs to cross Grand east and west at Layfayette and Detonty. We continue to ask people to be considerate -- using the detour routes should get you to your destination faster than waiting for (and pushing through) a break in traffic. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
I will pass your kudos on to the team. Thank you for sharing! Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
The work on the westbound I-44/southbound I-55 bridge over 3rd Street continues through December of this year. The 7th Street ramp will reopen in December when the project is done. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
S. Eatherton Road reopened this morning between Wildhorse Creek Road and Centaur in West County.
The road is located in both Chesterfield and Wildwood
Maintained by St. Louis County’s Department of Transportation, the road has been closed since late December, after violent rains caused a large shelf of earth to break loose from the hill immediately east of the road, near Lion’s Head Lane, and slide onto the pavement.
On July 5, a St. Louis County contractor began work on a project that will protect motorists in the event of future soil slides and the pavement obstructions these failures create. Extensive drainage was installed at the base of the hill, and a new driving lane built on the west side of S. Eatherton itself to permanently shunt traffic away from the hill. DAVID WRONE, ST. LOUIS COUNTY
We'll be wrapping up the work on westbound in about two weeks when the resurfacing and stripes are complete. The work on the eastbound widening will continue until late this year -- probably mid- to late December. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
Any particular time that you are seeing this issue -- i.e. morning or evening rush -- the more specific time (and directions) you can provide, the better our traffic engineers can evaluate the concern. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
You are welcome! Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
I have passed it along to our maintenance team to check out. Thanks! Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
A considerable amount of work remains to be done on our Baxter Road project. However, our contractor has until late October to complete the job. The rough pavement you're seeing there now will be replaced with a new driving surface. When the project is finished, Baxter will look and 'ride' like an entirely new road between Clarkson and Wildhorse Creek Road. David Wrone, St. Louis County
You are welcome -- our teams are constantly moving around the area working on striping. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
The current work on the I-44 bridges will continue until the end of this year. We have several other bridge projects set along I-44 for the next couple of years. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
The water company would need to address your schedule question. However, once the work is complete, St. Louis County will require that the utility company restore the pavement to pre-project condition. David Wrone, St. Louis County
You are welcome! David Wrone, St. Louis County
There may have been some equipment that got damaged during the storm. We'll check into it to get it fixed. If I hear anything further on this signal, I'll let you know. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
We are currently taking observations of the traffic flow along Watson Road between Elm and Geyer and will be making some changes to signal timing based on those observations. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
We can take a look at it, but it is highly unlikely -- it won't be as simple as changing the location of the stripes. That area needs the current shoulders, and there is a utility corridor very close to the roadway. Adding an extra lane would probably require purchasing additional right of way, which would be extremely expensive. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
I'll forward your concerns to our signals group. Thank you for sharing this information with us. David Wrone, St. Louis County
