That is a utility cut that we will be patching this month.
Last week, A Road Crew chat participant inquired about the signals controlling the intersection of Olive and Kingsland: "The signal is short cycling red and green," the motorist observed, before noting that Missouri American Water Company had, after completing a water main repair project, recently resurfaced pavement approaching this intersection. ST. LOUIS COUNTY'S REPLY: Several vehicle detection loops were damaged during the water company's work. (These loops are embedded in the pavement itself.) Because the compromised loops are currently unable to detect approaching traffic, we set the signal phases to give drivers a minimum "green" every signal cycle - regardless of traffic demand. In other words, a "green" light will appear even if there are no vehicles present. However, we're working with Missouri American Water Company's contractor to replace the damaged loops ASAP, and restore the signals to their normal cycles. David Wrone, St. Louis County
Later this month, St. Louis County's Department of Transportation will host a series of public meetings to discuss its "Action Plan for Walking and Biking," and solicit residents' feedback on the plan. (For detailed info about the action plan, please visit www.stlcountywalkbike.com.) Our first meeting will be held Oct. 16 at the Brentwood Community Center (2505 S. Brentwood Boulevard), which, as will all four gatherings, begins at 5 p.m. and end at 7:30 p.m. The second meeting will be held Oct. 17 at The Pavilion at Lemay (305 Gregg Road). Our third meeting will be held Oct. 23 at Greensfelder Community Center in Queeny Park (550 Weidman Road). Our fourth and final meeting will be held Oct. 24 at the Ferguson Community Center )1050 Smith Avenue, in Ferguson). We encourage residents to attend and learn about our plans to develop an enhanced bike and pedestrian network throughout St. Louis County, and to share their ideas about potential steps we can take to achieve that goal.

You'll need to contact the City of Richmond Heights about Oakland. St. Louis County doesn't maintain it. David Wrone, St. Louis County
Please contact Webster Groves about this issue, as St. Louis County doesn't maintain Elm. David Wrone, St. Louis County
Washington University spearheaded an intersection improvement project at that location to include pedestrian and bicycle accommodations - including green paint to better to increase awareness & visibility of heavy bicycle crossings over Skinker Blvd between the University and Forest Park.
There has been vehicle detection at both of these locations for some time now. We will verify operation at these intersections. Our staff is in the process of replacing older detection units with newer ones - will see if these are on the list for replacement already. Thanks!
