Was this at I-44 instead of I-64? We had a problem at Kingshighway and I-44 yesterday morning with improper signal flashing. We changed the controller yesterday afternoon, which should have fixed the problem. If it was truly at I-64, please let me know, so I can pass it on to our signal team.

Most of the work for that you won't see from the camera. They have started drilling into the columns and placing rebar. Work on that will continue until they slide the bridge out nine feet sometime next year. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
Because the work was done while the roadway was under traffic -- The vibrations from traffic, especially trucks, on a bridge that crews are working on can cause the concrete to be rough. Crews have been going out at night this week to smooth the roadway out. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
We'll take a look at the area and see if something still needs to be taken care of. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
Last week, a reader asked if St. Louis County has any plans to re-pave the short section of Telegraph Road that we maintain (from Kingston to Lemay Ferry). We do. Work is expected to begin this fall - primarily, concrete replacement (damaged curbing and sidewalks). However, the resurfacing itself probably won't happen until next spring. David Wrone, St. Louis County
St. Louis County maintains no part of Edgar. It would appear that maintenance responsibility would fall either to Shrewsbury or Webster Groves. David Wrone, St. Louis County
Per plans, the contractor is in the process of striping "skips" across the westbound through lanes so that there is a clear path delineated for motorists to follow that jog in travel lanes.
Our signal crews will check out the condition you described - thanks for the heads up!
This chat is moderated -- we see the questions in a list and then the appropriate agency (city, county or state) researches the question and then posts the question and answer. Please be patient -- if/when one of us has an answer, we'll post it with your question. Andrew Gates, MODOT Communications
Per our current schedule, Clayton Road will be resurfaced next summer and fall from Skinker west to the City of Ladue's city limits. David Wrone, St. Louis County
This looks like one that someone has to look at the exact location to see who is responsible for it. I've asked our maintenance team to check on it and see if it is on state right of way. If it is, we'll get it fixed. If not, we'll pass it along to the appropriate agency. Thanks! Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
I'm checking with our Division of Highway Planning, and will post a reply to your query as soon as I receive the pertinent information. David Wrone, St. Louis County
I'll pass that along -- it may be as the signal is switching to the timing plan. I assume this is in the morning? Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
You're welcome! And thank you for your kind remarks. David Wrone, St. Louis County
Several questions down, I let you know that I've referred your question to our Division of Highway Planning, and that I'll post a reply as soon as I receive the necessary information. David Wrone, St. Louis County
You're most welcome! David Wrone, St. Louis County
Thanks -- I have passed it along. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
It has to do with Missouri law and funding. MoDOT cannot spend money that it doesn't have. With nearly 1,700 centerline miles (which goes up to 6,800 lane miles) in the greater St. Louis area, MoDOT has to prioritize all the preventative maintenance in the area, and then schedule the projects when funding is available. In addition, we try to balance the impact of the projects, their costs and the timeframe that they take. When one of those elements is reduced, the other two go up. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
Our staff will continue to monitor/observe traffic patterns on the newly striped portions of Big Bend. We currently have no plans to revert to the old configuration. David Wrone, St. Louis County
We will check out the manhole at that location - thanks!
Our traffic engineers will take a look at this section of Grand during the AM. First we'll check to see that the vehicle detection is working in this area and that the other equipment & timing are operating correctly. If all checks out, we'll observe timing to see if we can tweak it to provide a gap for traffic turning from the side street to be able to do so when their turn in the cycle comes up.
Railroad overpasses are private property -- we have very little say on what they can or cannot do on their property. People on railroad overpasses are also trespassing That being said, we do work with the railroads and often partner with them on improving safety. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
I'll pass it on to our signal people -- Is there a specific time that you are seeing the issue? Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
I have passed this along to our traffic team to investigate. The sign may have been by request of Kirkwood, through an ordinance -- I believe it helps the individuals who live just west of the ramp the space to get out of their driveways during rush periods. If I hear differently, I will share in a later chat. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
The sidewalk you mention doesn't sound like it is on MoDOT right of way, and it sounds like it was placed by the developer, so it would be their responsibility, not MoDOT's. That being said, there are several sidewalk gaps on Gravois. Funding limitations prevented the department from addressing that during the recent resurfacing and sidewalk work, but we are looking at filling some of those gaps along Gravois in the future. We are determining funding for that work at this time. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
Let me chat with our traffic team about this and get back with you next week. As I understand, that line nearly clears on almost every cycle during the evening rush period. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
You would have to speak to Maplewood about their plans -- they do not join us on the Road Crew chats. Thanks! Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
