>Some saftey bits from the North Corridor study

Posted: 2011/04/14 in MoDOT, safety

>MoDOT posted this PDF file today in regards to safety on the I-270 mainline from 367 to the Chain of Rocks Bridge. Almost the entire section is rated poor or very poor in regards to safety. (Note: this link is only up until April 28.)

The deadline of submitting comments is April 28. (Please use I-270 North Corridor Study Comment for the subject line.)

At the very least one state has now come forward to admit safety is a big problem on the bridge. Now the waiting begins for IDOT to step up to the plate and tell the truth.

Yesterdays tractor-trailer incident happened at almost the exact same spot where the fatal incident happened on December 8. It isn’t surprising that the median wall hasn’t even been fixed from the first incident, and suddenly the damaged section has grown by thirty or forty feet.
