What we have said in the past is that the overall project won't be completed until next year. We do anticipate moving traffic onto the collector distributor bridge (the new exit ramp for the North Outer Road and the entrance ramp from I-270) later in the week, weather permitting. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
Just a reminder: Heege Road closed this morning (September 8, 2021) just west of Valcour Avenue in Affton. The closure will enable a St. Louis County contractor to remove and replace a bridge over Mackenzie Creek. Weather permitting, work will be complete - and Heege reopened - by the end of the year. Motorists can use Valcour, Weber and Laclede Station Road to circumvent the closure. David Wrone, St. Louis County's Department of Transportation
Unfortunately, the Illinois Department of Transportation doesn't participate in the Road Crew chat room. You would need to reach out to them. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications.
We do have a project planned for Hall Streets in a few years. We are in the early part of coordinating with some of the other partners on the corridor. Law enforcement keeps details on the crashes along the any particular roadway. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communiations
Right now, we are anticipating that those lanes will reopen about mid-October. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
You are very welcome. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
We had some complaints about that recently and we have had our traffic team checking it out to see if they can make some tweaks to that area. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
I have asked our maintenance team to check it out. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
We are looking at some design options to see what we can do with this.. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
CMAQ transportation funds are essential to the City's infrastructure as they predominately fund replacement of traffic signalized intersections (mast arms, signal controllers/cabinets, signal/ped heads, underground conduit/wiring, vehicle/ped detection, fiber optic communications, optimization of signal timing, ADA intersection improvements, lane geometrics, etc) that are cost prohibitive for us to do on a normal operating budget. Since the 90's this federal program has allowed us to reconstruct millions of dollars in signalized intersections on most of the major arterials in the City. These funds are available every year and are facilitated by East West Gateway to distribute among the surrounding counties including the City. Projects are very competitive and evaluated on their merit in terms of federal dollars spent versus congestion mitigation results achieved (i.e., less vehicular delay due to upgrades leads to less stops and vehicle idling, therefore reducing vehicle pollutants). Speed humps are not appropriate on arterials so we don't include those in federal grant applications. Road diets could be considered if you can include additional congestion mitigation efforts. Bike lanes can also be considered as one congestion mitigation measure as they constitute a potential mode shift in transportation option if they are provided. The City has engineers and planners that strategize annually on options for CMAQ projects as they are the staff who are the most intimately familiar with our infrastructure needs due to their involvement in daily operations. We typically share the projects that the City is pursuing, especially if the project was a grassroots effort that began in a particular ward with the assistance of local alderpersons and their community or neighborhood group. As we continue in the future with these efforts, we'll look to improve our communications even more than we already do to provide additional opportunities for input on the City's transportation network. Thanks for your comments!
Saw it this morning - 6600 block of Lansdowne - on it - thanks!
Can't say i've heard of this one - will check it out
