MoDOT Update

 

Dear Residents,

 

Please see the below update from MoDOT on the continuing work on I-44 between Kingshighway and Grand.

 

Justin Klocke

City Clerk

City of Shrewsbury

 

MoDOT continues I-44 bridge work between Kingshighway and Grand

ST. LOUIS – Next week, crews will start the second year of a construction project to update several bridges on I-44 in St. Louis City between Kingshighway and Grand.

 

This work replaces interstate bridges at Kingshighway, Thurman and 39th Street and rehabilitates interstate bridges over Vandeventer, Tower Grove and the Union Pacific Railroad tracks. 

 

All work is weather permitting and may be shifted.

 

Starting Monday, March 18, between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. crews will close one lane on eastbound I-44 and restripe eastbound I-44 for three lanes.  Each evening for the remainder of the week, between 7 p.m. and 5 a.m., crews will close an additional lane to set barrier wall for the new temporary median.

 

On Saturday, March 23, starting at 8 a.m., crews will close two lanes on westbound I-44 and shift the remaining two lanes onto the eastbound interstate. They will also close the Vandeventer ramp to westbound I-44 and the Grand ramp to westbound I-44. When the traffic shift is complete by 6 p.m. Saturday, there will be three eastbound lanes and two westbound lanes on the interstate through the end of the year.  The Vandeventer ramp to westbound I-44 will also remain closed for the remainder of the year; the Grand ramp to westbound I-44 is scheduled to reopen in three months.

 

Crews will work on the westbound bridges this year. Details on specific lane closures on the roads under the bridges will be shared as they become available. Crews will put a new driving surface on I-44 in this area in spring 2020, once the bridge construction is complete.

 

People using I-44 for their commute should consider using I-64 or I-70, taking Metro, using ridesharing or carpooling, or allowing themselves extra time as this construction work restarts.

PLANNED HELICOPTER MAINTENANCE WORK

WATSON-BAUMGARTNER 138-kV TRANSMISSION LINE

Ameren Missouri is committed to providing safe, reliable and affordable energy to our communities. In order for us to continue meeting energy needs, we will be upgrading sections of the energy grid in your community. Maintenance work will be performed on approximately 10 miles of the Watson-Baumgartner transmission line, located in or near the communities of Shrewsbury, Mackenzie, Marlborough, Wilbur Park, Lakeshire, St. George, Green Park, Mehlville, Lemay and Oakville.

 

The work includes the installation of smart grid technology and stringing new wire on structures and across Interstates 270 and 55. In an effort to minimize property damage and traffic congestion, Ameren Missouri will utilize a helicopter to assist with the maintenance work and upgrades on power lines. We encourage motorists who notice the helicopter work to focus on the road, maintain a safe speed, refrain from taking photos while driving and stay a safe distance from crews. 

 

We plan to begin work during the week of March 4th, 2019. Prior to construction, you may notice contractor crews mobilizing and material being delivered to the work areas. Weather permitting, we expect to finish this project by May 1, 2019.

April 2, 2019 General Municipal Election Update

 

Dear Residents,

 

The Shrewsbury General Municipal Election will be held on April 2, 2019.  In that election, each of the three wards will elect one Alderman.

 

You will note that in Ward 1, there are two candidates running: Mr. John Odenwald and Ms. Gabrielle Sullivan.  

 

Subsequent to Ms. Sullivan's filing and our certification of it with the St. Louis County Board of Election Commissioners, she has subsequently withdrawn her candidacy due to a new occupational opportunity.

 

Since the process of removing a candidate from the ballot at this late stage is quite onerous, involving court ordered ballot modification, and since we want to be sure that the voters know what they are being asked to vote upon, I have asked Ms. Sullivan to provide the community with a brief message updating you on the situation.

 

Here is her letter to the community.

 

All the Best,

 

Jonathan 

 

To Whom It May Concern:

 

This letter is to acknowledge my withdrawal from the race for Shrewsbury’s Ward 1 Alderman in 2019.

 

It is with a heavy heart that I have to withdraw from the running of Alderman. I had an opportunity come up with my employer that I could not reject. As a member of this community, I know how important it is to have someone ready and available for their constituents. With the hours needed in this new role, I would be unable to properly commit to the role of Alderman.

 

During my process of collecting signatures, I was able to introduce myself to the various members of this wonderful community and received much positive feedback in the process. I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to meet so many citizens of Shrewsbury. Campaigning allowed me the chance to get face to face with more residents than ever before. I will still be your neighbor in Shrewsbury and hope to continue fostering these new relationships.

 

With that said, I support the hard work that the Board of Alderman does and I wish it all the best in the future.

 

Thank you,

 

Gabrielle Sullivan
