We will check it out - thanks!
Last week, a Road Crew reader reported problems with the signals timing at Sulphur Spring Road and St. Joseph Lane. (Sulphur Spring motorists were constantly getting red lights, even when there was no traffic on St. Joseph Lane.) Our signals group investigated and found that a malfunctioning detector card was causing the traffic signal to cycle to St. Joseph Lane regardless of the traffic volume present. This defective card has been replaced, and the signals are now cycling properly. David Wrone, St. Louis County
Yes-one of our signal staff will investigate
Following the opening of FPP the timing along this road will be re optimized die to the changing travel patterns.
You bet! I have passed it along to have our signal team check it out. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
New detection equipment was installed after that comment where old equipment was malfunctioning & it was returned to proper operation. We will check to see what has changed since that time though. One complete signal cycle is mainline to one side of Robert and finally to the other side of Robert. If a vehicle arrived and just missed its window of opportunity it will have to wait until the next cycle.
Our traffic engineers will take a look and coordinate any changes with MoDOT.
If you can give me specifics -- near the mall, near 141, near the bridge -- I can pass it to my maintenance team. There are more than five miles of Route 370 in St. Louis County alone. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
That ramp will remain at one lane until the work on EB I-44/NB I-55 is completed in December. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communciations
I have passed your complaint on to the City of Creve Coeur. David Wrone, St. Louis County
Do you notice any particular choke points that I can pass on to our traffic team? Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
You bet! Thanks for the info. David Wrone, St. Louis County
I have asked our traffic engineer to take a look at those signals. There is a mix of timed signals and detection. If a signal with detection triggers because there's no traffic on the side street, you'll get caught at the signal with timing. We have a project in 2019 to replace the few timed signals along Page. Thanks! Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
I have passed this along to our maintenance team to check into. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
Do you have a specific time that the signal is causing a problem? Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
The resurfacing is finished and we are working with the utility companies to come out and raise their covers. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
You are very welcome! Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
They would have looked at this when they did the recent work along Page at Schuetz --you do have a lot of businesses that are along that roadway that could have a lot of traffic during morning rush. I have passed your thoughts along to the traffic engineer for this area. If I hear anything else, I will share it here. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
Thanks -- I have asked our team to check into it. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
They are wrapping up the smaller striping tasks as fast as they can given the traffic loading on Hampton - it requires very early morning efforts to provide safety for our on-street crews.
We have been in touch with the developer. Typically when someone wants to build a subdivision that large we require them to make improvements to the roads. In this case, we are still working out exactly what kind of changes we will require them to make. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
MoDOT's maintenance responsibility would end at the ramps from I-70 and at the eastern end of Natural Bridge Road there, I believe. I am checking with our team to see who may be responsible -- I'll report back next week, if I get an answer. Andrew Gates. MoDOT Communications
