Utility companies who do work on roadways are required to return the roadway to its original condition when they have completed their work. That includes striping. I will ask our maintenance team to take a look at this area to ensure that is part of the utility responsibilities. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
If you have specific locations, we can pass them along to get the signs replaced. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
I've asked our maintenance team to check this and see if the tree is on state maintained right of way. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
We passed it along to Missouri American -- they would be the ones responsible for making the repair, so you would need to check with them. I am checking with our maintenance team to see if they have heard anything, so if they get back to me, I'll update the response. Based on the evaluation of our maintenance team, the leak is only a trickle, so it shouldn't significantly impact the roadway. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Commuunications
According to our traffic team, due to right of way constraints (sidewalks, a wall at a car dealership and several houses close to the roadway) and several other issues, including ensuring sight distance for the U-turn lane, the northbound speed limit sign at the Huntleigh city limits is the closest practical posting for that sign. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
As our crews (and our staff) are out, they do report back any issues that they see through our customer service team to get addressed; however, MoDOT has more than 1,500 miles of roadway that it is responsible for maintaining just in the St. Louis area alone. Since roadway issues (potholes, etc) can develop quickly, we always appreciate extra eyes sharing what they see -- you can share issues with our customer service team 24/7 at 275-1500 or 1-888-275-6636. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications.
Certainly. Our road crew personnel share information internally with other St. Louis County departments, as well as with other (non-County) entities and agencies. Members of the traveling public are also encouraged to call our Service Request group to report issues with our roads and streets. The number is 314-615-8538 David Wrone, St. Louis County's Department of Transportation.
I'll forward your report to our Division of Construction for investigation. Thanks for sharing this information. David Wrone, St. Louis County's Department of Transportation
Traffic signal coordination requires you to pick a particular movement to progress - typically it is the highest volume movements such as your mainline traffic (in this case Hampton north/south). To do so, there will be only a brief amount of time available per cycle (40 seconds for example) of northbound/southbound green time for mainline Hampton that is being progressed through the subsequent traffic signals. The way each of the next signals are set to begin/end their respective northbound/southbound green times is to maximize the use of that 40 seconds as much as possible signal to signal to accommodate the queue of traffic it carries. That "syncing" of signals is based on their distance apart as well as the posted speed limit the vehicles are traveling at. On the flip side, if you are to enter Hampton from a side street you will very likely encounter a stop at the first signal on Hampton that you encounter as you are arriving either before or after that queue of mainline traffic has gone through. However, upon starting at beginning of green at that first signal on Hampton, you should then begin to join the queue of mainline traffic described above.
I'll pass this on to our signals group. Thank you. David Wrone, St. Louis County Department of Transportation
Believe that is a major permit project by Missouri American Water. It is a permitted project, so we did review their hours of work and approve it. However, there are many other impacts on construction on roads besides simple congestion. During the night hours, there would be a potential for noise and there are a lot of residential areas very close to the roadway. In addition, there may be rules that the utility company has to abide by (to include when they may be able to have water restrictions ) To verify those, you would need to contact them. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
I don't believe that the schedule has changed. I will ask the County Highway Department for an update and will pass that information along in next week's chat.
