I've asked our traffic engineer to take a look and see what may need to be updated. Thanks! You can always call in concerns such as this to our customer service team at 275-1500. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
The project is more than a resurfacing -- it is a rehabilitation of the bridge. That means crews are removing the driving surface, making repairs to the concrete under the driving surface, replacing joints and completing other preventative maintenance, and then replacing the driving surface. It's pretty extensive work, but since we are trying to limit the overall impact on interstate traffic, it can take a while. The contract completion date is in August, and we hope to be completed well before that. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
LKS ribbon cutting ceremony is June 2, please see Great Rivers Greenway website for details!
Last Wednesday's early afternoon storm cut power at my office. I was about half-way through "Road Crew" at the time. When we were zapped off the grid, I was responding to a reader's concerns about St. Louis County's ongoing improvements to Baxter Road, between Clarkson and Wild Horse Creek Road in Chesterfield. The reader was under the impression that our contractor's work will be limited to removing and replacing damaged portions of the road's concrete base. Why, the reader asked, aren't we also resurfacing Baxter? The answer is that this section of Baxter will in fact be completely resurfaced, subsequent to the removal and replacement of the damaged concrete base. This latter work is just the beginning of the project. By this fall, Baxter motorists will have what amounts to a new road on which to drive between Clarkson and Wild Horse Creek Road.

We sent staff there now to verify that the signal can be placed back into operation.
Crews are currently working on paving westbound I-64 at night as weather permits. It'll take a few weeks to be completed and striped, again as long as weather permits. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
1. We are scheduled to install stop signs at Louisiana & Osceola - should be in by end of week.
2. We will field check striping & correct accordingly.
Please let me know the name of the road, and the nearest cross street, and our personnel will investigate. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks! David Wrone, St. Louis County
I have passed this along to our traffic team to evaluate and see if they can make any adjustments. At most locations the reason traffic is split up for side streets is that turning vehicles would be colliding with each other. This is why traffic is split up at 340 and Timber Run - the dual left turns coming out of the shopping center would collide with the southbound left turns. It also means that the green time currently given to both directions would have to divided between the 2 split movements so less green time would be available than there is now. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
What time are you seeing this? Many of our signals have timing plans during the rush periods, but have detection in the early morning. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
Yep, before about 6, most signals will use detection -- the route with the most traffic will remain green. The signal will change if traffic comes up from a side street -- once that vehicle moves through the intersection, the main route will turn green again. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
I will share your thoughts with catchy phrase team. Although it is a common problem around the country, the best I saw was "Secure your load - don't trash (state name here)." Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
You're welcome - we always appreciate people who can make adjustments to when they go into or leave work (and carpool, and take Metro, etc. etc. etc.). Andrew Gatse, MoDOT Communications
I'm not clear on your question. When you say "pavement to and from [a] mailbox," are you talking about a concrete pad built between the curb and sidewalk and into which a mailbox post is inserted? David Wrone, St. Louis County
Rural Carrier, can you please email me at email@example.com? I need to get a bit more information from you before I look into the subject. Thanks. David Wrone, St. Louis County
I don't believe that we are making any changes to the movements there, but I will follow up and share what I find next week. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
