If you can share which direction, that would be helpful. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
What time are you seeing the backups? Signal times change during the day (usually, one timing plan for morning, one for the day, one for evening rush and then overnight. Often times there are other signals with higher traffic volumes that get priority -- the road with the higher amount of traffic gets priority. If you can share the time, though, I can pass it along to our traffic team to check and see if they can make any adjustments. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
Thank you for sharing these observations. I've forwarded your report to our Division of Operations for investigation. David Wrone, St. Louis County's Department of Transportation
Highway patrol handles crash reports -- we get copies of those reports from highway patrol when we are reviewing or studying an area. We have gotten no reports of a significant increase in crashes, nor do we have any current plans for major improvements in that area. I have shared your observation about the shrub with our maintenance team to see what they may be able to do to help improve sight distance lines. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
Thanks for your detailed observations -- I have passed them along to our traffic team for the area to take a look at and see what might be done. Any changes probably wouldn't get addressed until the next sign replacement project along I-270. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
I'll make sure our patch crew is aware of this, if they aren't already as reported to the Citizen's Service Bureau (CSB). Typically when there is a section of concentrated potholes and the time of year is right, a section of pavement would be taken out and paved over rather than patching each individual pothole in a cluster. We'll take a look and respond accordingly - thanks for your post!
