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
