Just a reminder: Motorists can call our Service Request line at 314-615-8538 to report potholes (as well as ANY problem with our roads). David Wrone, St. Louis County's Department of Transportation
We have had full crews on the roadway around the clock for almost two weeks during the waves of wintry weather that we have had. We are responsible for maintaining nearly 6,000 lane miles of roadway(i.e. one mile of one lane on a roadway) just in the greater St. Louis area. While snow is falling, our teams are primarily focused on the interstates -- that is where the majority of traffic is. We do pay attention to major state roadways such as Route 21, 30 and 366, but our primary focus is on the interstates while it is snowing. Once the snow stops, our crews continue to work on the roads until the interstates and state numbered and lettered routes, are mostly clear. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
We're currently pursuing federal funding to help finance a project that would include the resurfacing of Dorsett from Marine to Calamaide. However, we're so early into that process that I can't provide you a time table for the funding request or the project itself - should we appropriate the needed money.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications.
Downtown Worker -- I have passed your pothole concern about Truman and Chouteau along to our maintenance team, as that probably falls into the area we maintain on Chouteau. I have left your question up for the city to see and respond later. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
MoDOT maintains and plows snow on Lindbergh. However, during winter storms, our priorities will be on the interstates -- as that is where most of the traffic is. We do pay attention to roadways like Lindbergh, but need to keep the majority of our attention on the interstates. Other roadways, such as Clayton, are maintained by other agencies -- they too, will maintain their roads, most likely, in order of the number of cars that use them (i.e. the most heavily traveled get the most attention). As the winter events end, our crews remain on the roadway, until all the roadways are mostly clear. Andrew Gates, MoDOT Communications
I'll pass this on to our Operations group for investigation and appropriate action. Thanks for sharing your concerns. David Wrone, St. Louis County's Department of Transportation
