I'll have our right of way inspectors circle back with Missouri American Water Company and see if we can get an estimated repair schedule for this issue. David Wrone, St. Louis County
I've passed this along -- was there a particular direction you were see8ing this concern? Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
I'm checking with our Construction group (whose personnel interact directly with our contractors), and will follow-up with information about this situation ASAP. Thank you for sharing this information with us. David Wrone, St. Louis County.
Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 314-615-8173, and I'll put you in touch with the appropriate Transportation group. David Wrone, St. Louis County
You're welcome! David Wrone, St. Louis County
We cannot keep one lane open at night while still keeping the roadway safe and get the roadwork done in a reasonable amount of time. The current detour is a quick hop off and back on the interstate. The work there should be finished in about a week. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
The preferred lighting for that roadway utilizes the poles in use now. The City is pursuing a way to cap the pole locations so the unused ones can be removed.
We will send someone to check out both of these comments today.
MoDOT does not control where law enforcement patrols. We'll share it with the municipality that covers that area. You may want to do so, as well. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
We'll take a look at the signal timing there to make sure it is working according to plan, or if there may be any adjustments we can make. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
As a general rule, we don't require a utility company to repair any pavement disrupted by its work until the utility project is complete. (Otherwise, the repaired pavement would almost certainly be torn up shortly after the repairs are made.) Once work is finished, we require the pavement to be restored to "as new" condition. I'm checking with our street inspection group to see if anything unusual has unfolded on Baptist Church Road. David Wrone, St. Louis County
Denny is too close to allow an effective flashing yellow arrow for the eastbound left turn at Sappington. You might be able to make the turn, but would have to stop at Denny. We'll look at the other directions and see what, if anything, we may be able to do with Denny. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
That should still be under the developer's control. We'll share your observations with them. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
Usually, there is a delay between when the utility company makes a repair and they place the permanent patch. They want to make sure that the repair "holds" before permanently fixing the roadway. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
You are correct -- there is a definite need for people to slow down during the work zone. We have had a good amount of enforcement out there (probably not during rush hours) -- SLMPD has been issuing a number of tickets -- including one for more than 95 MPH in a car. We would appreciate all drivers slowing down through the work zone -- even when they do not see workers -- It will help keep everyone safe. We will check the signage on eastbound I-44 to make sure it is accurate. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
We have had detour signs up along Southwest when we needed to close down the underpass. They should direct traffic to McCausland or Hampton. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
I have passed it along to our maintenance team to take a look at. It may be a utility patch that we are waiting for them to restore. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
I am told that the detour signs are up directing traffic to McCausland or Hampton when the underpass at Southwest is closed. I've asked the team to double check that the next time they have to close one of the underpasses. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
You're very welcome! Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
