Yes-new pavement & striping will occur on Delmar.
The east-west detour route for the Forest Park Parkway/DeBaliviere closure is I-64 (via Skinker and Vandeventer) because of the highway's ability to handle the approximately 20,000 vehicles per day that are normally served by Forest Park Parkway.
Our sign crew is already working on a permanent repair for this location-thanks!
Most of the current work is off the main roadway (around the outer roads), so you aren't seeing it much in the way of obvious construction. The project is still due to be complete in June 2018. Since it is design-build, there is a lot of flexibility for the construction team on how it is constructed. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
They are still working on it and are steadily making progress on the new surface on westbound I-64. Excessive heat and heavy rains do cause delays. We are looking at the end of the month/beginning of August, weather permitting. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
They should be open in late September, weather permitting. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
I've never discussed my personal opinion about bike lanes on this chat, so I'm baffled by the assertion that my "stance" has "flip-flopped." As I mentioned last week, the Department of Transportation supports the construction of bike lanes when cost, engineering and traffic flow warrant them. I am not the Department of Transportation. Rather, I'm but a humble cog in a mighty engine. And in this capacity, I report to various people whose positions on this and sundry other topics it is my professional responsibility to accurately explain to the taxpaying public. Whether you agree with a particular position is of course entirely up to you. David Wrone, St. Louis County
Hampton, between I-64 and Wilson, is being studied now to determine what types of improvements are needed - including items such as traffic signals, pavement, & pedestrian accessibility. These recommendations will be packaged into a federal grant application for funding design & construction in the next few years.
At this time, we have no improvement plans scheduled for Lackland. David Wrone, St. Louis County.
Our contractor began work this week, and we expect to have the old bridge removed, the new bridge built and the road reopened by the middle of October - barring an extended period of bad weather. David Wrone, St. Louis County
We will check the signals on 14th at Clark and Spruce immediately - thanks for the heads up!
The resurfacing of Gravois in the city has been pushed to next spring. Construction crews continue to work on the signals along the route. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
Any particular time that you notice this? Signals tend to be timed to deal with the existing traffic levels. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
We will have continued work on the current project through this fall. However, we do have several other projects scheduled for the next few years to renovate bridges along the I-44 corridor. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
I have asked our maintenance team to check out the lights on the bridge and replace the burnt out bulbs. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
I have asked our traffic engineers to take a look at this area along Lindbergh to see if they can make any adjustments or improvements. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
The eastbound I-64 project will be completed later this year. The westbound lanes will be striped when the resurfacing work is done in a few weeks. There are temporary tabs on the roadway to act as stripes until the resurfacing is completed. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
We have no active improvement project slated for this section of McDonnell Boulevard. David Wrone, St. Louis County
Forest Park Parkway is anticipated to be re-opened by Monday. The pavement improvements, which are typically performed using aldermanic funds, are being rolled into a federal grant application (along with the other improvements mentioned) that will only require 20% of the cost to be paid by the City - with the remaining 80% to be covered by the feds. The downside to the lower local cost for the City is the time schedule associated with it.
Thank you for the report. I'll forward it to our Division of Operations. Please don't hesitate to call our Service Request bureau at 314-615-8538 to report issues with our road system. David Wrone, St. Louis County
The Kingshighway project is expected to re-open lanes to traffic by the end of December 2016.
We will check out Ellendale for the street lights that are out near St. James Square as well as the pothole by Picadilly. What is the observed problem at Wabash & Lansdowne with the pedestrian indications? Any more details greatly appreciated and assist in our troubleshooting.
Work began July 5, and is going well, notwithstanding our recent rains. If the weather cooperates, S. Eatherton will be reopened by early August. David Wrone, St. Louis County
Late this year -- crews still have to complete widening work, as well as the resurfacing for the westbound lanes. Expect it to be in mid to late December. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
Much work remains to be done on Baxter. However, our contractor has until October 31 to finish the project, and is on schedule to meet that date. When work is complete, Baxter will look (and drive) like a new road from Clarkson to Wildhorse Creek Road. David Wrone, St. Louis County
The area you are commenting on is included in a larger study area for a federal grant that was awarded to the City that will identify a host of pedestrian improvements around Tower Grove Park. Improvements will include upgraded crosswalks with ADA compliant curb ramps, high-visibility striping, and the appropriate signage. In the interim, we will discuss the requested signage with the local alderperson and Tower Grove Neighborhoods Community Development Corporation as that type of sign is not an item that the Street Department provides. In addition, there has been limited success with those signs, particularly on South Grand near this area, as the signs get damaged/destroyed by vehicles.
