Ask the Road Crew

If a stretch of I-270 has you feeling down, or there's a badly timed light, talk to the Road Crew of experts from MoDOT, St. Louis and St. Louis County.Join the weekly chat on Wednesday, July 5 at 1 p.m.

    MoDOT does not have funding available for aesthetic improvements (and to maintain such improvements) as you mention. There are opportunities for private firms to sponsor sections of I-64 through our I-64 Landscape Sponsorship Program. The company pays a firm that is responsible for mowing and upkeep of landscaping along the interstate and they get a Sponsor A Highway sign. Interested companies can check out more information at In addition, municipalities can work with the MoDOT to sign an agreement where the municipality can install landscaping and maintain it.

    I believe back in 2010 when the signals along Morganford were re-timed this was changed. The signal runs a low cycle length (100 seconds) overnight with an equal division of that time between concurrent north-south Morganford followed by each side of Loughborough going separately. We haven't had any complaints related to delays at this location. We will verify the vehicle detection is operating correctly however just in case. The LED traffic signal indication installations started 10-12 years ago. If we have heads that go out that are still under their 10 year warranty, we can still get them replaced under those terms.
