More after the break...
Traffic to be switched to newly constructed southern lanes when done. Will remain on south lanes until project is completed.
During construction at National Drive roundabout, traffic will be routed to the north side of the roundabout while S National is closes and to the south while N National is closed. Traffic will be head to head. I anticipate a speed reduction, but that has not been confirmed.
Power and signal switch at 9 and 45:
Request for City assistance to aid with switching power at 9 & 45. Need police assistance directing traffic for approximately ½ hour. Power switch currently projected for approximately 2 weeks out. Will give prior notice.
Request for City assistance directing traffic during signal replacement at 9 & 45. Need police assistance directing traffic for approximately 4 to 8 hours. Signal switch currently projected 2 to 4 weeks out. I have requested at least a weeks notice.
MoDOT to start lane widening at SE corner of 9 and 45. No lanes to be closed, unless temporarily to allow access for equipment. Trail sign at SE corner must be removed during construction. County has requested City assistance to remove sign board from posts and store temporarily. MoDOT to remove posts (buried in concrete).
Currently we are on schedule to meet our 12/31/12 completion date, with most of the paving completed as early as fall, and just the medians, sidewalks and other items going into the winter.
