Thanks for sharing your continued observations -- I have passed them along to the traffic engineer for the area to take a further look at before the corridor optimization planned for later this year. Optimization looks at a corridor and tries to reduce the amount of time traffic on the major route stops during different levels of traffic (usually morning rush, evening rush and other times). As you can imagine, it is a fairly exacting task, requiring a lot of traffic counts and analysis of the various traffic movements, speeds through the corridors, traffic levels on cross streets and a lot of calculations. Although our traffic engineers certainly could do it, it is a lot more cost-efficient to outsource that and save our traffic experts for the multitude of other tasks that require their attention. As a note, we did check the detection the last times that you shared this, and didn't see any issues with it. It is possible that people are not pulling up to the stop bar completely and therefore aren't triggering the detection on the signal. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
I've reached out to the team overseeing the projects, and they tell me that there are some repairs that need to be made to the overlays. When the contractor has finished making those repairs, they will get the bridges restriped. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
Since that portion of Mackenzie is Missouri Route P, we should control it. I have asked our team to check it out and see if there is an issue. If it is the signal that is facing the cemetery, it should be red much of the time. Is it facing toward the school? Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
Rob asked about potholes on Biddle Street under the interstate downtown. We do have a project where that area will be resurfaced, starting later this year. Until then, our maintenance team will continue to monitor the area and patch the worst spots until the resurfacing starts. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
Thanks -- I'll pass that on. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
We will check out the utility cut you mentioned. The delineators you spoke of are scheduled to be replaced if they haven't been already.
Our Operations group will investigate. Thank you for the report. David Wrone, St. Louis County's Department of Transportation
