I have passed a note along to our striping team to touch these stripes up. Thanks for the details.
Typically, we don't have the safety messages up during rush periods (or we toggle them) -- we would rather share information on roadway conditions and anticipated travel times. However, we do sometimes have issues with sensors not reporting correct speeds -- when that happens, we will turn the travel times off (since they are inaccurate) and instead post a safety message.

You're welcome! Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
It would be hard to determine exactly which organization (or contractor) lost them unless they are marked, but I would say to return them to the nearest maintenance facility for either the city, the county or MoDOT. If we can't use them, we may be able to get them to someone who can. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
The ramp is closed for safety while crews worked on making repairs and replacing joints on southbound I-55/westbound I-44. With one lane closed, it was not safe for drivers to try to accelerate on that ramp to merge into traffic on the interstate. We'll reopen it soon when we finish the work on that side of the interstate -- we have to schedule a significant closure to get good stripes down. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications.

Clayton-area motorists: Effective this Saturday (August 26), Hanley Road - from Carondelet to Forsyth (a one-block section), will lose one of its five lanes of traffic. Currently, Hanley Road consists of two north-bound and two south-bound lanes and a shared "left turn" lane. However, construction demands of the Centene development on the south-east corner of Hanley and Forsyth requires the loss of one of those lanes. Centene's developer needs the outside (curb-side) northbound lane as an unloading zone for the project, which will necessitate the elimination of the shared left-turn lane. Hanley, from Carondelet to Forsyth, will thus consist of two north-bound and two south-bound lanes only. Drivers should expect to experience delays, as traffic will almost certainly stack up as a result of left-turning vehicles. This lane reduction is expected to last two years.

I have asked our traffic team to share any information with me on any impending plans for optimizing the Watson Road corridor. If I hear anything back, I'll share it in a future chat. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
The project should be complete around Labor Day weekend - wherein the lanes across Kingshighway will be reopened. There are two different projects running concurrently.
