Ask the Road Crew

Whether it's getting to a game or getting to and from work, the Road Crew experts have you covered. Ask the pros from MoDOT, St. Louis and St. Louis County all your commuting questions during the weekly chat on Wednesday, April 20, at 1 p.m.

    Those signs were put up at the request of the municipality. It may be due to a bridge they own east on Lackland that has a weight limit. They would be responsible for any enforcement. There are no engineering requirements for a weight limit at this time. As a note, weight limit is determined by the overall weight. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
    I was also wondering if you could please give me the link to the Hillsboro Valley Park road study, I tried googling it but can't seem to find it.
    Two questions / comments:

    1) Is the light at Jefferson & Scott (just south of I-64) supposed to use detection for traffic on Scott? If so, it is not working properly. At 6pm yesterday, Scott received a green in both directions even though there was no traffic on either side.

    Additionally, this light cycle should be altered. Right now EB Scott gets a green and left-arrow. When the green & left arrow both go red, WB Scott gets a green and left-arrow.

    There is not enough traffic on Scott in either direction to require a protected left arrow, outside of the morning UPS rush. Can the arrows be eliminated outside of that time (or at least provide shorter arrows with unprotected lefts for the remainder of the cycle?

    2) Clayton & Skinker during the afternoon rush similar situation. WB I-64 exit ramp has a cycle with both a green and green left arrow then EB Clayton gets a green and left arrow.

    While there is demand on EB Clayton for a long protected left, last night I was stuck at this light for 3 cycles and counted (at most) 3 cars turning left from WB exit ramp to SB McCausland.

    You'd get far more EB traffic through if the cycle was WB green & left arrow (shorter than today), Green both directions with no protected left, EB green & left arrow (same duration as today).
