Thanks for your follow-up. We are working to get this taken care of -- it has been a little chilly recently, which is not the greatest conditions to update striping. We are working to get the sign taken care of as well. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
This project should be completed by the end of the year. Work was significantly delayed by the discovery of a clutch of subterranean utility conduits whose ownership proved difficult to pin point. (We couldn't remove/deactivate the pipes without first knowing what lay inside them.) Our contractor also experienced complications with other utility relocation issues. We're very sorry about the delay and inconvenience associated with this work. David Wrone, St. Louis County
The work on I-44 is on track. The bridge over the railroad track should be complete by late December, which will open up the ramp at Shrewsbury. There will be a final layer of asphalt that goes on both bridges next spring, but that would should be off peak. I-44 between Grand and Kingshighway will continue through the end of 2019. We'll finish the eastbound bridges this year, work on the pedestrian bridge over the winter and work on the westbound bridges next year. We'll have to resurface that in the spring of 2020. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
It is intentional. Not as much of the driving surface needed to be removed (and therefore replaced) when we did the most recent resurfacing. It sounds odd, but doesn't impact the safety or durability of the roadway. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
That location is on our list for the downtown area to upgrade when funds become available - I appreciate the comment on its need, thanks!
Before limiting the movement you mentioned, I'd like to try to revisit the timing on the signals along Gratiot with MoDOT to help keep the turn bay to EB 64 shorter (allowing room for left turning traffic). Our traffic engineers will work with MoDOT to see what can be accomplished.
I would prefer running McCausland and Canterbury as-is during the morning and afternoon rush periods due to the heavy traffic present in those period that intend to progress to/from the signal at Arsenal. In order to run Canterbury at a lower cycle length on an at-demand condition, would take it out of sync with Arsenal. However, what we can do is look into doing that during the off-peak periods for Canterbury when there isn't as heavy of a demand in terms of traffic volumes. This would lead to a snappier signal cycle for this location to lessen vehicular delays.
I knew what you meant - no worries!
