Kirkwood Road is maintained by the city of Kirkwood. You will need to talk to them about their signal timing. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
Do you have a more specific time when you see this? It can help our traffic engineers see if there are ways to improve the issue. Currently, traffic along Lindbergh near I-44 is a bit heavy due to the extra traffic using it to access I-44 until the Watson Road bridge/ramp reopens. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
What time are you seeing this -- for example during morning or evening rush. Often times, due to consistant traffic levels, they need to limit certain turns, but if they have specifics, they can see if they can make any adjustments. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
Thanks for sharing your thoughts --- there are a lot of factors that go into the price of gas -- most of them determined by either the fuel supplier or by the vendor. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
We continue to discuss concerns such as this with the GRG team that is overseeing the work and encouraging them to limit their impact on traffic as much as possible. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
Our traffic signal techs will check this out - thanks
The bridge work between Kingshighway and Grand will be completed in December, and all lanes will reopen in both directions; however, we need to place a final layer of asphalt on the roadway to bring everything up to the same level, and cover all the old lane lanes. That will give us a clean surface to put new lines on. That will happen next spring. However, we do have additional work along I-44 -- Jefferson starts next year. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communciations
Yes, that will happen later this year. We still have some resurfacing to do along Route 141 before that happens. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications.
Yes, there are several bridges being worked on west of the Meramec River next year. They include Osage, Viaduct, Route OO, Six Flags, and over the BNSF and UP railroads. There is also work on Loop 44 at Fox Creek and at Route 109 and First Street. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
The work on I-44 near Jefferson is expected to take two years. There are a lot of variables that can impact the length of time that a project takes -- the length of the bridge, the type of the project (is it a rebuild or a renovation, for instance), the amount of traffic and the other potential impacts. We want to try to limit those impacts.Because the work is in the city, and there are a lot of residences near the roadway that will be impacted by around the clock or night work (and there are fewer lanes and roadway width), it takes longer to do the project. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
We are still working through a lot of the final details on that particular project (the bridges west of I-270 along I-44). We'll probably know more closer to the end of the year, although we'll ultimately have to work through the final bridge staging with the contractor that gets awarded the contract. We'll try to minimize having bridge work on a detour or relief route for one of the other bridges. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
St. Louis County's Department of Transportation is hosting an open house tomorrow (September 12) to discuss potential improvements to Reavis Barracks and Green Park roads.The meeting will start at 4 p.m. and end at 7 p.m., and is being held in Jefferson Barracks Park's Lemay Pavilion (305 Gregg Road). Public input into our potential improvements will play an important role as we move forward in selecting a final plan. Residents are encouraged to attend, ask questions and share their views. David Wrone, St. Louis County
Just like a house, bridges (especially river bridges) need extensive work to ensure that they remain safe and operational over long periods of time. During any project such as this, especially when the work has a dramatic impact on drivers and residents, we work with first responders before and during the project. We also try to limit work (for instance, the most recent bridge work was delayed until Franklin County was able to complete and open a bridge they were working on. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communciations
The issues on Shrewsbury were unusual -- it was a complex bridge for many reasons. We are confident, especially considering our excellent track record otherwise, that that problem should not reoccur. After Jefferson, there isn't much left in the city -- although we do have several bridges between the city limits and I-270 that will need attention after the Meramec River Bridge is finished. Once we are finished with the work on I-44 in the city, we will need to move to I-55, as many of the bridges along that corridor are also starting to get to the point where they need rehabilitation, renovation or replacement. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
We regularly send sweeping crews out along state-maintained routes in the city. I will share your concerns with the maintenance team in the city area. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
Since you are speaking in generalities, I don't know if the alternate routes of which you are speaking are state-maintained (although they should be if they are the official detour route). In Franklin County, we have no way of knowing which MoDOT routes may have water on them, without the information being reported to the department through law enforcement or other emergency responders, or without our maintenance team having eyes on the situation( which typically can't happen until we are alerted there may be an issue) . Roadway conditions can change quickly, especially during heavy rainstorms. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
There never was a project to take Route 141 over I-44. The recent project at Route 141 and I-44 was to reduce congestion and improve the flow of traffic, and reduce maintenance along that stretch of roadway (including reducing the duration and impact of flash flooding). The flyover ramp helps keep southbound traffic heading for both eastbound and westbound I-44 moving during flooding events (especially if the Meramec River floods. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
I've asked our traffic team to take a look at this signal. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communciations
I've asked our traffic team to take a look and see if they can make any adjustments along that stretch. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
I have passed this along to our signal maintenance to check into. You can always call our customer service team 24/7 at 1-888-ASK-MODOT. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
I'll ask our traffic team to take a look at them. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
That is complex signalized location as it is multiple intersections operated by a single controller. That in itself lends to a long wait time as it cycles to the various legs that cannot operate concurrently. We will still investigate that location to see if anything is malfunctioning.
You don't say what time this is -- typically Route 30 is weighed toward I-270 in the morning and away in the evening. However, if vehicles are pushing into the intersection and blocking it, that is a matter for law enforcement. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
The City does operate special event timing for major event venues' egress to flush traffic out at these times. We are always looking for funding opportunities to purchase additional in-pavement vehicle sensors. These allow the intersection to sense vehicle activity and any unused time is reallocated to the movements where activity exists. We have a good amount of these sensors, but can always use more for new intersections as well as replacement of older equipment.
