Our traffic signal technicians will check it out - thanks!
We will check the timing on Hampton during the morning as you suggested. Nothing has changed intentionally however so we will investigate for potential malfunctions. I haven't heard of any complaints though. There was a vehicle incident that had NB Hampton backed up in the morning rush hour on Monday. We will verify!
Changes were made last week and we are continuing to work on it. Fixing the Scott detection was definitely a step forward. Thanks for your suggestion on the timing adjustment.
When the pushbutton is activated randomly during a signal cycle (usually about 120 seconds before it repeats), there is a set time within that cycle that the walk comes on in order to have predictability needed for maintaining coordination of traffic progression on that stretch of South Grand. At a worst case scenario of just missing that window of potential crossing time if activated, the pedestrian would wait the time it takes for conflicting movements to go before it comes back around within the signal cycle. For the obvious safety benefits there, no one should cross other than during their protected crossing time. Less than two minutes for that time is well worth the wait.
We are working to address this concern. With the number of signals listed, it takes some time to gather the required data during multiple field checks along the corridor to make the necessary changes. We are working on both the AM and PM rush hour along this stretch of Gravois.
Looking at McCausland/Skinker corridor already today for that exact reason - will keep you posted!
I'll have our signals group investigate. Thanks for bringing this to our attention. David Wrone, St. Louis County
Good afternoon. Our Area Engineers Lisa Kuntz and Michelle Voegele are fielding the MoDOT questions. We look forward to hearing from you.
Jerry, I am checking on this. I'll post a response as soon as I hear from our planning group. David Wrone, St. Louis County
MoDOT is rehabbing 12 bridges at the I-70 and I-170 interchange. Weathering depending, the current work on I-170 over Natural Bridge is anticipated to be completed by the end of the month. The work on the westbound I-70 to southbound I-170 is anticipated to take about two weeks. Work at the interchange will continue into next year.
We will perform a field check of this location and inform you at the next chat room session regarding this issue.
Following up on Jerry's earlier question about our plans for Mehl Avenue: We have a resurfacing project planned for Mehl, from Ringer to Lemay Ferry Road. This work will occur in either 2017 or 2018. We have no plans to widen Mehl. David Wrone, St. Louis County
Mentioned little earlier, but we are looking at detection needs on McCausland/Skinker now-more to come!
No changes have been made to that location, but we will verify it is operating correctly. If the left turn arrow is coming up within the signal cycle, we don't have a detection problem.The left turn arrow will only come up once per signal cycle though.
We are always looking for ways to create and maintain an accessible region that supports the mobility necessary for residential and business growth in the City. We do take the big picture in mind when reviewing new requests for street closures and are open to discussions related to older closures with local leadership.
We do have a few of the Ox Blue cameras that are rotated around the state and used on various construction projects. Sorry, we don't have many details on the Lafayette Project specifically.
We have passed this along to our traffic team to review.
