>More lane restrictions tomorrow

Posted: 2011/06/01 in construction, IDOT

>It been a slow month, which can be a blessing and a curse. There were those moments where the peeps had to put up with the delays with the canal bridge inspections, but finding little on the MoDOT “StLouisTraffic” twitter feed all month long (just a single stall) made May a total win.

Good things don’t last long, however. IDOT is planning on lane restrictions tomorrow during off-peak hours on the river bridge for deck repairs. Its not the only dirty trick in the works, as IDOT got more contracts up for letting for June 17. This letting includes the canal bridge replacement project (packaged with the reconstruction of the Route 3 interchange for good measure), and repairs to the river bridge. (The details are on pages 19 and 29.)

Due to the severe weather last Wednesday, I was unable to unload my thoughts on the East-West Gateway long term transportation plan as intended. However, they will have to deal with yours truly tomorrow at lunch hour. This corridor needs to be fast tracked and waiting will not solve any issues.
