A follow-up from last week: One of the readers was asking about crosswalk warning signs at the Tower Grove roundabout. Our engineer checked it out and determined that several of the signs had been knocked down. They have new signs on order and they will be replaced. It could take a month to get them replaced, though.

We are troubleshooting communications between the signal equipment at Oakland and our traffic management center now. Without communications to that signal, the synchronization will be off between the two intersections you mentioned. This issue should be resolved soon.
I have forwarded this comment along so that it can be field checked for pothole repair needs.
The traffic signal at McCausland & Oakland has been repaired and is back in synchronization with the adjacent signal at Clayton/I-64.
Clayton Road, from Skinker to Brentwood Boulevard, is most definitely on our resurfacing radar. We are pushing to get that section of road repaved (or at least the project initiated) by '17. However, funding issues may require us to push the work back to '18. David Wrone, St. Louis County
Our engineers believe they fixed the problem you identified, and we just checked all the detectors on the signal to make sure they are working correctly. You don't mention what time you went through the signal on Sunday, but it is possible that you went through when the signal was resetting from one signal timing plan to the next. If you see it operating incorrectly in the future, you can call it in to our customer service team at 314-275-1500 or 1-888-ASK-MODOT. Thanks! Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
The City's current downtown signal project at the intersections along Chestnut at 7th, 6th, & Broadway as well as the intersections along Market at 7th & Broadway will be upgraded to include pedestrian actuation.
We will send an engineer to the intersection to perform observations during the peak periods of commuter traffic to determine if there is a need for additional signage/striping.
Last week, a reader inquired about ponding water on Frost and North Hanley, near I-170. County forces investigated and traced the water's source to a broken main. The matter was referred to Missouri American Water for repair. David Wrone, St. Louis County
Vehicles are not to block access in the alleys or streets. Please contact law enforcement if you continue to have issues.
I passed along this message and it will be checked out today. Thanks for the heads up!
